What are your COVID-19 Safety, Health Check and Testing Policies?
Please visit our Safety page for updated information.
On the Bindle mobile health app, do I need to create an Entry Pass for every show?
(Applicable beginning October 3, 2021): Generally speaking, you will only need to create one entry pass. The entry pass will remain valid as long as your documentation is current. If the results of your negative test expire, and no longer meet the venue requirements, you will be required to upload a new set of results that meet those requirements. In this instance, you will need to create a new Entry Pass. If the event you are attending has different requirements that are more strict than our current policy, you will need to create an entry pass for that specific event. Your venue Entry Pass will still work for future shows, but you will be required to create a unique entry pass for the specific show with additional requirements.
Is the Bindle mobile health app safe and secure?
