As Twitchy reported earlier, White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki made it clear Thursday that “even after you’re vaccinated, social distancing and wearing masks will be essential.” So that’s it, then; even if you’ve been jabbed twice with the COVID-19 vaccine, you still have to stay locked down and wear a mask, or two, or three. We’re all in this together, and until every American has been immunized … then they might start thinking about letting up on the mask mandate.
We’ve talked about this before, and the idea didn’t go over well: How are you going to go about proving you’ve been vaccinated? A little card with a stamp or punches in it? Politico reports that conspiracy theories are coming true as tech companies work on developing an electronic “passport” that will show if you’re allowed to enter a building without a mask.
What if an app could take you back to normal life — or at least take you into a restaurant? It’s not a time machine. Tech companies are working on tech to verify who’s gotten a vaccine — a sort of “passport” back into crowded spaces https://t.co/IG7pJUAimI pic.twitter.com/IC61u7KdOj
