France extends use of Covid health pass until July 2022

MPs in France have approved public health laws that allow for the continued use of the Covid health pass until July 31st, 2022, despite opposition from senators.
MPs in the Assemblée nationale have approved the Vigilance Sanitaire bill by 118 votes to 89, in the process rejecting senators’ efforts to limit its scope and rework key articles.

Its main purpose is to extend public health measures adopted because of the Covid-19 pandemic, including a requirement for people to have a pass sanitaire (health pass) to access particular venues and events.

The health pass requirement, under current rules, is due to end on November 15th.

The health pass will not necessarily remain in place until July 2022, but the passing of the bill allows the Prime Minister to extend it as required, or reimpose it at any time until next July.

The bill also allows the government to impose mask mandates and to prohibit or restrict travel, gatherings and access to certain places, such as cafés, restaurants and public transport without the need to involve parliament.
