No health pass, no cinema or museum: France tightens COVID-19 rules

Visitors heading to museums, cinemas or swimming pools in France would  be denied entry from Wednesday if they cannot show the document that proves they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have had a recent negative test.

The new rule was disclosed on Wednesday

The health pass, previously only required for large-scale festivals or to go clubbing, will also be needed from August  to enter restaurants and bars and for long-distance train and plane journeys, as authorities try to slow the spread of the virus and encourage people to get vaccinated.

Nelly Breton, 51, a resident of Paris, after being turned away from the Louvre museum, said she was angry with the new rule adding that she would now look for a pharmacy to get a rapid COVID test.#
