NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Bridgestone has partnered with the CLEAR Health pass app to allow fans attending events to easily show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test requirement.
The CLEAR Health pass app allows people attending events at the Bridgestone Arena to have their information on COVID19 requirements out-of-the-box and at their fingertips.
Before coming to the Arena, Bridgestone officials said fans can get the Clear Health Pass by visiting nashvillepredators.com/clear. Once fans download the app, they can download their COVID-19 vaccination card or negative test. It will then go through a verification process on the application.
Once at the arena, Bridgestone will have set up tent stations with people checking out the CLEAR Health pass.
“It’ll just show the app. There’s a verification process there. It’s a live screen,” said David Chadwell, vice president of event operations for Bridgestone Arena and Nashville Predators. “There is movement, so we know this is not a screenshot of someone else. There is a selfie there so we can visually identify that it is. ” the person “.
Anyone aged 12 and over participating in an event at the Bridgestone Arena will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test 72 hours before.
Chadwell added that they had contracted with “a company that has medical professionals to do the actual verification.”
“Like everyone, it has affected all of us in ways we never expected. But at the end of the day we want to keep the doors open, we want to have wonderful events,” David Kells, vice president executive entertainment venues for Bridgestone Arena and Nashville Predators said. “We want to have great Nashville Predators games. And that’s the means we need to do it in the short term.”
These new stages of health screening begin this Wednesday and will continue until November 15.
“It’s not something we want to do forever. We want this to end. We want more vaccinations in the community to increase and cases to decrease. We will continue to monitor,” Kells said. “We will continue to consult with all area health professionals and industry event producers to see when it is the right time to cancel or extend this.”
“The health and safety of our guests, performers and performers is the priority. And with the increase in cases it was paramount for us to do what is best for everyone. We love to organize events,” said Chadwell said. “We love people to come to Bridgestone Arena and have fun. And we want to do it in the safest way possible.”
UPDATE: Bridgestone Arena has announced that Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan’s show has been postponed to October 24, 2021 after it was postponed …
