Wallet? Check. Water? Check. COVID-19 test?
The pre-concert checklist for music fans is about to get more complicated, as Ticketmaster is planning to check the coronavirus vaccination status of concert-goers prior to shows once a treatment is approved, Billboard reported Wednesday.
The ticketing giant 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, according to the exclusive report.
The plan, which is still being ironed out, will utilize three separate components, including the California-based company’s digital ticketing app, third-party health information firms like CLEAR Health Pass and testing/vaccination distributors like Labcorp or CVS Minute Clinic.

Welcome back Prof. Tracy.

Welcome back to you as well!
Are these the same individuals wearing masks while driving, with the windows rolled up? This appears to be an early beta test, with more on the way in short order.
So using mannequins and having them closer than 6ft and have coughing in each other’s faces proves face mask works.
Because mannequins lives matter too. 😎
