The NBA basketball league has entered into a partnership with secure identity company Clear, whose Health Pass technology will be made available to teams for in-arena health screening.

Clear’s Health Pass solution securely connects a user’s verified identity to multiple layers of COVID-19-related health information. The technology is designed to reduce public health risk and aid the safe return of fans to NBA arenas in the US.

As part of the agreement, fans will be able to securely access and verify their health information before entering an arena on game day. As COVID-19 vaccination roll-out continues in the US, guests will soon be able to link vaccination records to their Health Pass account.
