How can we restore confidence in traveling and attending in-person events? Proof of a negative Covid test is required of international travelers entering the U.S., but that’s not the rule for domestic travel…yet. As vaccine distribution continues to expand, we’re likely to see some form of a digital Covid passport required for all travel, believes Terrell Jones, founder of Travelocity, Kayak and several other travel startups. He’s now working with governments and travel leaders to establish such digital records.
