If you want to travel in 2021 it may require a special, COVID-19 passport.
Various public health and technology groups have been working together to create an app or series of apps for mobile devices that would allow individuals to upload COVID-19 related information that would give a person access to events.
The virtual pass would include information like COVID-19 tests and vaccination records.
The idea has been floated for sporting events, concerts, and movies.
The Commons Project, The World Economic Forum, and a coalition of public and private entities are reportedly collaborating to launch CommonPass, according to KTVX-TV. It would be a standardized, trusted, globally-interoperable platform for people to document their COVID-19 status (health declarations / PCR tests/vaccinations) to satisfy country entry requirements while protecting their health data privacy.
