The CDC said Tuesday that fully vaccinated people can spread the Delta variant and updated their guidelines to recommend masks indoors regardless of your vaccination status.
Many restaurants, bars, and events such as concerts may require proof of vaccination upon entry.
Union Square Hospitality Group, the owner of several New York City restaurants including Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe, announced Thursday that indoor diners and staff will be required to provide evidence of COVID recordings, CNBC reported.
"As of now, we plan to accept a physical Covid-19 vaccination card, New York State Excelsior pass, a corresponding state-issued vaccination card, or a photo of the vaccination card upon arrival at our restaurants," said a Union Square spokesman for the Hospitality Group told Insider.
This is a great way to show you have been vaccinated when traveling to a place that requires vaccination.
What is the best way to show a company that I am vaccinated?
Your physical CDC vaccination card is the most foolproof way to show you are vaccinated. Almost all venues should accept the government issued document.
What if I lost or forgot my CDC vaccination card?
The federal government is suggesting taking a photo of your vaccination card in case it is lost, Insider's Allana Akhtar reported. If you've misplaced the card without backing it up, Amesh Adalja, senior scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, told ABC News to go back to the place where you got an injection and get a replacement request. The CDC does not collect information about a person's vaccination status, so it is important that you contact your doctor directly.
Can I show a picture of my CDC vaccination card?
Whether or not companies accept photos of your paper vaccination card as a valid form of verification depends on company policy. At the moment, most restaurants accept a picture of the card - but it is always safer to bring the physical document with you.
What about digital vaccination records?
Government-approved digital vaccine passports such as the New York State Excelsior Pass, Hawaii Safe Travels System, and California's Digital Covid-19 Vaccine Record are all valid forms of vaccine identification. However, not every state offers a digital passport option.
MyIRMobile allows users to save official, verified vaccine records as PDF on their phone, Forbes reported. Participating states include Arizona, District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Dakota, Washington, and West Virginia. You can check your state's Department of Health website to see if they can provide electronic copies of vaccination records outside of the app.
Which vaccination documents do I need for travel?
Most international travel requires Americans to prove they had their vaccinations, but specific rules may vary by country. Check out the various documents required for the trip in the Insider's Guide.
