Persons falling under the above categories will be checked for SafePass possession, and must present a certificate proving that they meet one of the requirements of SafePass (vaccination card or COVID-19 recovery certificate in printed form or written text message or certificate of negative PCR result or rapid antigen test in printed format or written text message).
