Likewise, the Executive specified that the vaccination certificate will not be a requirement for the entry of personnel to places such as nightclubs or sports spaces.

However, the French health authorities recommended the use of face masks in patients positive for Covid-19, in health workers.



The Government pointed out that it is not necessary to use the sanitary mask in educational institutions, but in the event that a student tests positive for the disease, they must undergo a self-diagnosis test; while students immunized with the anticovid dose should not be isolated.

It should be noted that with the new measure, the European country is added to the list with other countries in the area such as Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, and Norway; where the sanitary restriction was removed.



To date, a total of 54,256,141 nationals have received at least the first vaccine against Covid-19; while at least 39,309,697 people have a booster anticovid dose.
