Reservation platform Resy is offering a free way for its restaurant clients to track employee health related to COVID-19, the company announced Monday.
Resy partnered with Clear, a secure identity company, to provide Clear’s Health Pass technology free to all Resy restaurants through 2022.
The health pass allows restaurants and employees to track proof of vaccination, coronavirus test results and health screening details to detect any symptoms.
In February, restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Enlightened Hospitality Investments fund invested $100 million in Clear. So far, more than 130 organizations have used Clear’s Health Pass to track COVID-related health data, the company said.
"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, VP & GM of Resy and the American Express Global Dining network, in a statement. "Resy's goal is to support them by providing a suite of technology that helps streamline operations and allows them to focus on hospitality."
Users of Clear’s Health Pass can add their proof of vaccination by uploading their card to the app. They can also link their lab provider to show recent COVID-19 test results, as well as take a health survey to screen for symptoms, Resy said.
In recent weeks, reservation platform OpenTable also partnered with Clear, allowing OpenTable users to verify vaccination status and issue digital vaccine cards. OpenTable also added other functionality for its restaurants, including the ability to display their vaccine policies, verify vaccinated guests for future visits and communicate with guests via text.
