The Minnesota Senate has passed a bill that would prohibit mandatory “vaccine passports,” showing whether a person received a positive or negative test result.  But at the same time lawmakers rejected a measure that would have banned “places of public accommodation” from requiring patrons to say whether they’ve been vaccinated. Prior Lake Republican Senator Eric Pratt argued:

“If they want me to wear a mask to protect their employees, I’m willing to do it.  What I’m *not* willing to do is hand over a vaccination record that discloses my personal health decisions.”

But Bloomington Democrat Melissa Wiklund said:

“We need to have the input from those entities that would be affected by this amendment, and that has not happened.”
