Health Passports for Visiting Las Vegas? • This Week in Gambling

This is no April Fools joke. Reviv Global has announced the launch of what some are calling a ‘health passport’ which works in conjunction with their testing facilities located in Las Vegas. Those facilities are located in the MGM Grand, The Cosmopolitan, and The Venetian.

The Heliix Health Passport is a mobile app, and after testing the results are sent directly to the users device using VCode, an end-to-end encryption to prevent hacks and data breaches. That VCode can then be used to verify test results and grant access to restaurants, conventions, nightclubs, shows and other events.

“The critical piece to bring business back to Vegas is to ensure that the large resorts can offer some level of COVID security to give visitors peace of mind,” said Julia Miles, Reviv’s commercial operations director. “We want to be part of the solution that brings Las Vegas back to the location that it once was as quickly as possible,” she added.
