U.S. Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., are asking biometric services firm Clear for details on how its new Health Pass app, which links individuals to their COVID-19 status, protects and uses subscribers’ biometric information.

Meanwhile, Rep. Candice Keller, R-Ohio, refused to have her temperature taken at work, saying, “I have a right to privacy.”
