FRANCE has scrapped its strict Covid vaccine passport rules, in a bid to push Britons towards their goals.
Today, the popular holiday destination has dropped the requirement that people use a Covid passport – known as a pass – to enter restaurants, bars or cinemas.
In addition, the mandatory use of masks has been eliminated – with the exception of public transport and care homes.
Before, to access the vaccination cardBritons need to be fully vaccinated, show proof of Covid recovery within the last six months or medical proof of an exemption from vaccination.
Any visitors who do not fall into these categories are prohibited from entering the locations that require the pass.
However, as of today, the pass has been removed, so people can enter bars, restaurants and gyms regardless of vaccination status.
At the beginning of the month, Prime Minister Jean Castex told broadcaster TF1 that the regulation would be lifted because the ‘health situation is improving’.
“The situation is improving thanks to our collective efforts and the measures we have taken,” he said.
Mr. Castex has warned that there has been an increase in Covid cases in France in recent days, but, despite this, has continued with the easing of restrictions in the country.
I said local media: “Indeed, we are seeing a recurrence of cases, like everywhere in Europe.
“[But] The improvement in our hospitals and high vaccination rates led us to maintain the lifting of the measures. “
This change means vaccinated Britons can go on holiday in France without having to follow many of the Covid rules.
To participate, vaccinated Britons need to show proof of vaccination and fill out an sworn statement certifying that you do not suffer from Covid symptoms.
For now, unvaccinated Britons can still only enter France for a necessary reason.
France is the latest country to relax its Covid rules, following in the footsteps of Canary island.
Last week, all the Islands – including Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote – start operating at the lowest level of Covid restrictions.
The islands of Spain have operated under a traffic light system since the pandemic began, depending on the number of cases and hospital conditions.
But all the islands were downgraded to Covid alert Level 1 last week, meaning they could be at 100% capacity in all indoor and outdoor spaces, including cafes, bars and restaurants. bar and restaurant and closing time may be 4am.
