A critical aspect to the self-attestation process working for both venues and those who wish to safely patronize those venues is making sure that users are not able to circumvent the requirement to upload valid vaccine or testing documentation.
In addition to requiring users to legally affirm their vaccination and testing status under penalty of law, we’re regularly working on measures to make the self-attestation process as secure and safe as possible. You will see these features released regularly over the coming weeks and months, and we’ll communicate them as they’re released. The first feature, to be released in the beginning of October, includes a warning about the importance of providing authentic health information.
As a current best practice in addition to having a Bindle-only line for Bindle entry pass holders, we recommend regular random checks of vaccination documentation in the Bindle app. It should only take a few seconds per random selectee to check and make sure if someone has uploaded their actual vaccination documentation. Those who haven't could be denied access to the venue at the venue's discretion.
Checking the vaccine documents for every 1 out of 10 or 1 out of 20 patrons or whatever ratio you see fit will still be vastly faster than not using Bindle and having to check the vaccine cards of all patrons. Signage outside the venue should also indicate that random checks of certification will occur.
The threat of regular random screening similar to airport security or customs should ensure the vast majority of Bindle users comply with uploading their valid vaccination and testing information.
