NEW YORK (WSYR) — With more events opening across the state, many have been asking about the Excelsior Pass.
It’s a free way for a person to verify their COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results.
There are three types of passes and they have different lengths of validity.
The COVID-19 vaccination pass is currently valid for 180 days after it is retrieved, opposed to 30 days of validity when it was first rolled out.
After it expires, you can get a new one from the Excelsior Pass website.
The COVID-19 PCR test pass is valid until midnight on the third day after the test is administered. After your COVID-19 PCR test pass expires, a new test is required to retrieve a new pass.
The COVID-19 antigen test pass is valid for six hours after your test, and after it expires, a new test is required to retrieve a new pass
