Visitors to French monuments now need a COVID pass • FRANCE 24 English
FRANCE24, 22 Jul 2021
Visitors now need a special #COVID pass to ride up the Eiffel Tower or visit #French museums or movie theaters, as new rules came into effect Wednesday following a government decree. This is the first step in a new campaign against what France's government calls a “stratospheric” rise in delta variant infections. #Tourists who came to the #Paris landmark unprepared lined up for quick virus tests at the site.
To get the COVID pass, people must show they are either fully vaccinated, have a negative virus test or proof they recently recovered from an infection.
