NYS Excelsior Pass Wallet is an Android application designed to keep people in New York safe during a pandemic.
The mobile app supports the safe opening of New York City after a long lockdown. It stores digital confirmation of vaccination against COVID 19 or negative test results. Users can provide this document to visit public places.
There are currently three types of pass, namely COVID 19 Vaccination Pass, COVID 19 PCR Test Pass and COVID 19 Antigen Test Pass. This data can be stored in a paper version or transferred to a smartphone to provide it at businesses and venues.
It is worth noting that the presence of a negative test still requires the application of precautions. People need to follow the States guidelines on social distance, hand hygiene and masks.
Uploading data to NYS Excelsior Pass Wallet is voluntary. Residents can use alternative proofs of vaccination or testing. It could be other utilities or paper forms.
