The You Check app is to trial in London and Bristol aimed at helping venues to reopen safely. Not new. However, now made reactive to current needs in its targeted functionality the “digital health passport” will allow venue door staff to make checks to ramp up confidence for punters and venues alike as audiences look to reassemble again, and jazz clubs, our primary focus, plus many other types of venue, look to reopen. You Check's unique notification system has been adapted to assist track and trace efforts. “Music Venue Trust is pleased to be working with You Check to explore how this technology might form part of a comprehensive process which enables us to reopen every venue safely and revive live," the Music Venue Trust CEO Mark Davyd comments.
