In a decree published in the Official Journal on Tuesday, the French government specified the first places that will be affected by the extension of the health pass from tomorrow, Wednesday, July 21. Other places should follow after the vote of the law relating to the management of the health crisis, under discussion in Parliament and which should be promulgated in August, after the opinion of the Constitutional Council.
As of tomorrow, an anti-Covid health pass (showing a completed vaccination schedule, a PCR or antigen test of less than 48 hours, a certificate of recovery from Covid-19) must be presented in a certain number of places welcoming at least 50 people , against 1000 people previously, such as theaters, games, sports or museums. The obligation of the pass for shopping centers, strongly contested, must still be the subject of a decision for the beginning of August.
The mask can be removed in certain places with a sanitary pass. The government has provided for the lifting of the obligation to wear a mask (unless the prefect of the department or the owner of the place requires it). “Where there is the anti-Covid-19 health pass, people” will be able to remove the mask “, because” that means that we are sure that all the people who return are completely vaccinated or have a very recent test which is negative, ”Minister of Health Olivier Véran said on Tuesday morning.
