New health rules for your events
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the French Government adjusted the health measures already in place for events.
From August 30, new rules apply to all your professional or family events.
Brief overview of the new protocol to better accompany you in the organization of your receptions.
And to learn more about your event in practice and our measurements, download our sanitary protocol below.
WHICH AUDIENCE IS INVOLVED?
Any guest aged 18 and over. From 30 September 2021, this obligation will apply to 12-17 year olds.
For the employees of the Caterer, Organizer of receptions, as well as its suppliers, this obligation will apply from 30 August.
HOW DO I MAKE SURE THE HEALTH PASS IS VALID?
Guests will be required to submit a paper or digital proof as:
- Complete vaccination of more than 7 days
- Negative RT-PCR or Antigenic or Self-test supervised by a healthcare professional under 72 hours
- Positive RT-PCR test of at least 11 days and less than 6 months, showing recovery
The only exception is a medical contraindication certificate given to the person concerned by a doctor.
WHAT IF MY GUESTS ARE FROM ABROAD?
Only the European Health Pass, entitled “EU Digital Covid Certificate” is valid in France. The present QR code can be read by the control application.
This certificate is published (and therefore read) by all member countries of the European Union and six other countries (Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway and Switzerland).
If guests come from other countries, their proof of no contamination is not valid and they had to do a screening test than 72 hours before going to the reception venue.
HOW TO CONTROL THE HEALTH PASS?
The control, must be performed at the entry of the event and/or the venue, with the application TousAntiCovid Verif.
This application allows you to scan the QR Code and immediately see if the Health Pass is VALID.
NB: This check is complementary to the Contact Tracing by QR code or recall booklet.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA ARE TRANSFERABLE?
Last name/first name/date of birth and health pass status (VALID or NOT) are the only information displayed.
No archiving of the data and no possibility of knowing why the health pass is valid or not.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CONTROL?
The application of the decree is the responsibility of the operator of the place and/or by the organizer of the event.
IS WEARING THE MASK STILL REQUIRED?
The obligation to wear the mask outdoors has been lifted since 17 June 2021.
Since 09 August, the obligation to wear the mask indoors is no longer applicable to persons accessing establishments, places and events subject to the health pass control.
However, the wearing of the mask may be made mandatory by the prefect of the department, when local circumstances justify it, as well as by the venue or the organizer of the event.
So, it is the organizer of the event who decides to allow or not the guests to remove the mask.
To this day, as a precaution and safety principle, Saint Clair maintains the requirement of wearing the mask for all its employees.
