Which shopping centres now request a health pass?

Which shopping centres now request a health pass?

By Cassandra Tanti - August 17, 2021

As of 16th August, people wanting to enter major shopping centres must present a health pass. One of the Riviera’s most popular shopping malls has managed to skip the list, while furniture giant Ikea hasn’t been so lucky.

The French government has mandated health passes at shopping centres larger than 20,000sqm in departments where the incidence rate exceeds 200 per 100,000 inhabitants over the period of one week.

In the Alpes-Maritimes on Tuesday, the incidence rate was 580.

As a result, several shopping malls are affected: Cap 3000 in Saint-Laurent-du-Var, Auchan in La Trinité, both Carrefour Lingostière and TNL in Nice, the Carrefour in Antibes and the Giant Casino in Mandelieu-la-Napoule.

Polygone Riviera in Cagnes-sur-Mer is not included in this list because it is an open-air shopping centre.

In the Var, there are also six shopping centres that will demand a health pass of customers: Auchan in La Seyne-sur-Mer, Carrefour in Ollioules, Carrefour Mayol-Toulon, Carrefour Grand Var Ouest in La Valette du Var, Géant Casino Center Azur in Hyères, and Ikea in Toulon.

Additionally, the obligation to wear a mask in the Alpes-Maritimes and the prohibition of alcohol consumption on public streets and amplified musical activity have been renewed.

A health pass can be obtained by presenting proof full vaccination, a negative PCR test carried out by an approved healthcare professional less than 72 hours prior to entry, or a certificate showing antibodies from previous infection.
