The law on various health surveillance provisions published in Official Journal of 11 november 2021 extends until 31 july 2022 the exit regime from the state of health emergency and in particular the possibility to use the sanitary pass. Therefore, until July 31, 2022, the government may take certain measures to limit travel or access to certain facilities.

The transitional period of exit from a health emergency is scheduled from 2 June 2021 to 31 July 2022. During this period, the Prime Minister may limit:

  • travel;
  • the possibility of using public transport (e.g. the requirement to wear masks), and banning it in the territories where the virus is believed to be actively circulating;
  • opening of establishments that receive the public (shops, cafes, restaurants, theatres, cinemas...) or meeting places and their access (barrier measures, gauge of persons...) or temporarily closing them;
  • rallies, meetings and demonstrations.

During this period, if the health situation warrants it in view of the circulation of the viral virus and on the basis of specific health indicators (vaccination rate, positive test rate, incidence rate or saturation rate of the beds of resuscitation), a sanitary may be required for access to places or events that welcome the public for cultural, sports or leisure activities or professional fairs or trade shows.

  Please note : The exit from the state of health emergency, established by the law of 31 May 2021 until 30 September 2021, and extended for the first time by the law of 5 August 2021, was due to end on 15 November 2021. The law on various health surveillance provisions published in the Official Journal of 11 november 2021 extends the exit regime from the state of health emergency until 31 july 2022.

On November 5, the Constitutional Council issued its decision on November 9, 2021 and declared partial non-compliance. The Constitutional Council accepted the extension of the state of health emergency and exit regimes until July 31, 2022, and censored the ability of school principals to access student health data and several government authorisations to issue new orders.
