France making the “COVID pass” mandatory for most leisure activities

From next month, the passes will also be mandatory for entry to bars, cafés, restaurants, and shopping malls. Children under 12 are exempt, and it will not be required at schools.

The region around the Mediterranean city of Perpignan, on the border with Spain, has been under new restrictions since last Sunday because of the high number of new infections there. Bars and restaurants — which only fully re-opened last month — were closed again. Police chiefs in several other areas have been authorized to bring in new restrictions if the situation warrants it. The COVID pass exists in paper and digital versions and contains the holder’s Vaccination Certificate, confirming they are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. It can also be used by people who are not fully vaccinated to show a negative PCR or antigen test, or proof of having recovered from COVID-19 with antibodies remaining. The Charente-Maritime region next to Bordeaux saw the highest rise in infections, with a massive 766% jump last week over the week before.

More Health Minister Olivier Véran said the Delta variant now accounts for 96% of new cases in France.
