New York State has launched a digital pass that can be downloaded to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. The Excelsior Pass will be accepted at major entertainment venues like Madison Square Garden, and can be used by smaller arenas, at wedding receptions, catered events, and more. It works like any other mobile pass, using a secure QR code on a smartphone or printed on paper.
