France to scrap vaccine passport, masks this month

People in France will no longer be asked to show a Covid-19 vaccine passport to access venues from 14th March, as the country gradually eases Covid health protocols amid signs the virus is receding in France. 

French Prime Minister Jean Castex told TF1 television on Thursday that “the health situation is improving,” and as a result, face masks will also no longer be needed indoors from 14th March, with the exception of public transport.

The vaccine pass will remain mandatory to access elderly home care centres, Castex added.
