The health pass (vaccine Passport) in force in a hundred shopping centres
A hundred shopping centers and stores are subject to the health pass this Monday according to the recommendations of the government, which asked the prefects to impose it for the surfaces of more than 20.000m2 in the departments where the rate of incidence exceeds 200 for 100 000 inhabitants.
New step for the health pass: after bars, restaurants, hospitals and transport, its use is extended this Monday, August 16 to large shopping malls in the Paris region and in the south of France marked by a high incidence of coronavirus.
The health pass became compulsory on Monday 16 August in at least 126 shopping centres and stores of more than 20,000 m2, in accordance with the government's recommendations, according to a count drawn up by AFP on the basis of prefectural decrees.
Paris, which has a lower incidence threshold, has nevertheless introduced the health pass for five department stores (Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, BHV, Le Bon Marché and la Samaritaine) and three shopping centres in the capital. Four departments in Ile-de-France (Seine-Saint-Denis, Val d'Oise, Val-de-Marne, Hauts-de-Seine) exceeding the threshold have published orders introducing the health pass. The other departments concerned in France are Alpes-Maritimes, Bouches-du-Rhône, Charente-Maritime, Corse-du-Sud, Gard, Haute-Garonne, Gironde, Hérault, Landes, Pyrénées-Orientales, Rhône, Haute-Savoie, Var and Vaucluse.
