Ticketmaster is is working on a plan to check the coronavirus vaccination status of concert-goers prior to shows. The company plans to have customers use their cellphones to verify their inoculation or whether they’ve tested negative for the virus within a 24- to 72-hour window. If you don’t have a negative test, you can’t get in to the show. The plan, which is still being ironed out, will utilize three separate components, including the company’s digital ticketing app, third-party health information firms and testing/vaccination distributors, once those systems are in place. Concert-goers would then instruct a lab to send over test results to companies like CLEAR Health Pass or IBM’s Digital Health Pass, which would verify the fan’s status to Ticketmaster. Here’s the complete story from Fox Business News.
