The obligation to wear a mask and present the “vaccination pass” has been lifted since March 14, 2022.

Wearing a mask remains compulsory in:

  • Public transport, interregional rail, air and sea transport, taxis and VTC. Wearing a mask is also required indoors in stations, ports and stations, once you have passed the ticket control gates.
  • Places of health and care.
  • Wearing a mask remains recommended in closed places and in large gatherings for fragile people, due to their age or their pathologies.

The application of the “vaccination pass” is suspended but the “sanitary pass” remains in force in health establishments, retirement homes, establishments welcoming fragile or disabled people.
