Monday July 12, Emmanuel Macron presented new health restrictions with a double objective: to boost the vaccination campaign against covid-19 – this is already the case – and curb the spread of the Delta variant in France. New restrictions starting to enter into force on Wednesday.
In places accommodating more than 50 people
In concrete terms, anyone over the age of 18 – 12-17 year olds are exempt until August 30 – must now have a health pass to go to “places of leisure and culture” in more than 50 people, against 1,000 previously. The following are particularly concerned: cinemas, places of worship (but only for “events not of a religious nature”), conference and performance rooms, marquees, games and dance halls, libraries , ships and boats, trade fairs or exhibitions of a temporary nature, as well as covered sports establishments.
Also concerned by this lowering of the gauge are “cultural, sporting, fun or festive events organized in public space or in a place open to the public”.
This is what appears in the decree published in the Official Journal from this Tuesday.
Before an extension planned for the beginning of August
At the beginning of August, the use of the health pass will be, in particular, extended to restaurants, cafes and some shopping centers. But details still need to be provided. This may be the case this Wednesday, Jean Castex being the guest of the 1 p.m. newscast of TF1.
How do you get your health pass?A health pass consists either of a complete vaccination schedule, or of a negative test (PCR or antigen) of less than 48 hours, or of proof that one has been infected and that one has been cured of covid-19 (test PCR or antigen positive of at least eleven days and less than six months). A certificate with QR code is provided when the second dose is injected, but can also be recovered on the Health Insurance website or from any healthcare professional. Each of these proofs constitutes a health pass, the QR code of which can be presented in paper form or integrated into the TousAntiCovid app.
