The French health pass was enforced in new venues from August 9
Gabriel Attal said, the new law on extension of the pass will start to be required in cafés, restaurants, long-distance transport etc from August 9.
It is already required for leisure and cultural venues with a capacity of 50 or more.
He said however there would initially be a period of “adaptation” and “tolerance”, with assistance and information for the venues concerned with checking.
He said this would be similar to the week of “fine tuning” that was allowed for establishments already subject to the rules.
More than 40 million people in France have now had at least one vaccine dose and the new objective is to increase this to 50 million by the end of August.
Even people who are on holiday in another region of France are able to have one of their doses in their holiday resort and the other at home, Mr Attal said.
Here is a reminder of where you will need to use the health pass, and key dates:
