Resy partners with CLEAR to support restaurants with health, vaccination verification
As industry faces verification challenges with employees, customers, Health Pass, CLEAR app provide solutions
Amid vaccination requirements, Resy has partnered with CLEAR to provide a way for restaurants to utilize CLEAR’s Health Pass technology free of charge through 2022. Restaurants can use CLEAR’s Health Pass service with their employees and also use the Digital Vaccine Card to verify customer vaccination where required.
Restaurants can track employee health, vaccination status using CLEAR
Through the Health Pass Service, restaurants can provide a way for employees to show proof of vaccination and test results, and complete a health survey.
CLEAR notes that more than 130 organizations have used its Health pass to “help create safer environments.”
Union Square Hospitality has worked with the CLEAR Health Pass technology.
“We’re committed to taking steps to assure a continued path forward with health and safety as a top priority, which is why working with CLEAR and using their Health Pass is so important to us,” said Danny Meyer, founder and chief executive of Union Square Hospitality Group.
Customers can show restaurants vaccination status using CLEAR app
In addition, restaurant customers can use the CLEAR Digital Vaccine Card in a restaurant where proof of vaccination is required. Once information or a vaccine card is uploaded to the free CLEAR app, it can be shown anywhere and is secure.
New York, New Orleans and San Francisco, for example, are cities that require customers to provide some type of proof that they are vaccinated to dine in at restaurants. CLEAR’s partnership with Resy follows the company’s integration of vaccine status functionality in OpenTable, announced in August.
The Digital Vaccine Card is able to update with vaccination results from hundreds of vaccine providers and national pharmacies, including Walmart, Atlantic Health System, state of California, and New York, according to an announcement.
“Our restaurant partners are operating in a very challenging, continuously evolving pandemic environment. They are doing their best to keep up and adapt to new policies that are stretching their limited bandwidth even further,” said Alex Lee, vice president and general manager of Resy and the American Express Global Dining network. “Resy’s goal is to support them by providing a suite of technology that helps streamline operations and allows them to focus on hospitality.”
