Weddings, shows, TGV: what to do, with or without a health pass?  – France


    The extended health pass, voted this Friday in the National Assembly and discussed in the Senate, already leads to cancellations of events. The heaviness of the logistics to put in place dissuades associations or cities from maintaining their celebrations. To find your way around this upheaval, we present a series of scenarios to come together legally.

  • 1 Organize a family celebration (wedding, birthday) by having rented a room
  • The rooms rented to organize family celebrations are in the same situation as restaurants and bars. They will have to require the presentation of a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test in early August. The president of the Union of Solidarity Professionals in Events (UPSE), Mélissa Humbert-Ferrand, explains: “The rule will be the one that applies to catering, which also hosts weddings, and it is therefore at the beginning of August that the pass will be required. What we do not know is who will be responsible for the control at the entrance, the family or the owner of the room. »For the town hall wedding ceremony, depending on the size of the hall, the town hall may limit the number of participants.

  • 2 See a show or go to the cinema
  • Since July 21, for live shows, in the open air or indoors, the presentation of the health pass applies as soon as the gauge of 50 spectators is reached. In this context, wearing a mask is no longer compulsory. After a period of hesitation, cinemas wishing to be able to sell less than 50 seats per screening are authorized to do so, but with a compulsory mask.

  • 3 Attend a religious ceremony
  • Places of worship can continue to receive their masked faithful as part of their religious activities. When it comes to concerts, readings or conferences, the health pass rule above 50 participants applies, and wearing a mask is no longer an obligation.

  • 4 Traveling by train
  • The health pass will be required in the first days of August for long-distance train users (TGV and intercity trains). The precise date of application depends on the promulgation of the law still under discussion in the National Assembly and the Senate. Note, minors are exempt from health passes until August 30.

  • 5 Demonstrate and claim
  • It is still possible to assemble to protest or demand, according to the rules for declaring the times and the route of the event in the prefecture. Only restriction: wear the mask.

  • 6 Take a guided tour
  • Gatherings of more than 10 people in public spaces remain prohibited, with the exception of guided tourist tours. Corinne Amicel, tour guide in Trébeurden, says: “The guides obtained an exemption, most of us are self-employed, we had to work. We respect distancing and mask regulations. Many visitors tell us that they are vaccinated, or that they have had a test before their trip. In general, common sense wins. In tourist offices, officials await the details of the law to adapt their activities.
