As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and cases rise across the country, organizations are partnering with ID.me to ensure a safe return to offices, support in-person events, and keep their employees and customers safe.
ID.me's COVID-19 Status Verification includes proof of vaccination, health status, and proof of negative COVID-19 test results tied to a verified member identity.
To start the COVID-19 Status Verification process, members must access the link provided by the organization for which they are verifying. When accessing this link, new and existing members will be directed to ID.me to verify their COVID-19 status. New members may use a personal email to create an ID.me account. Existing members can sign in with their ID.me login information to complete the COVID-19 Status Verification process.
Partners may select from the following COVID-19 Status Verification methods:
- COVID-19 Status
- Self-asserted health status using a questionnaire, AND/OR
- Document-based evidence of COVID-19 vaccination status
- Proof of negative COVID-19 test results within the last three days
What happens after COVID-19 Status Verification?
After completing the process and sharing their information with their organization, members will receive an email confirming successful COVID-19 Status Verification. From there, members can sign in to their ID.me account and access their Vaccine ID, which includes a QR code containing their verifiable history of COVID-19 Vaccination Status, health status, and negative COVID-19 test results. Members can also add and manage their email addresses.
As with all ID.me issued credentials, verified members are in total control of their information allowing them to share it on a case-by-case basis.
