We are grateful that New York state is doing everything possible to reopen businesses safely and quickly. The Excelsior Pass provides a convenient option for fulfilling the state’s entry requirement, which includes proof of a negative test or full vaccination – making it an important tool for helping people gather and, ultimately, for the recovery of New York.”  - Rich Claffey – Executive Vice President Venue Management, MSG Entertainment

This past May, we used the Excelsior Pass for our in-person Commencement ceremonies. The Pass provided a secure and convenient option to quickly confirm the vaccination status of attendees allowing us to reduce lines, verify our attendees’ status and safeguard the health and safety of everyone involved."  

- Rick Gatteau, PhD – Vice President for Student Affairs at Stony Brook University
