Health pass: an exemption for truck drivers

After the approval by the French government, the Health pass validity went into effect on August 9 in many establishments open to the public in France territory.  The pass must prove one of the three situations: the person is fully vaccinated (with an EMA-approved vaccine or similar) or that he has been tested with a negative result within the last 48hrs or that he has recovered from COVID-19, attested by a positive PCR or antigen test result, at least 15 days and no more than 6 months old.

These Passes can be digital (on the TousAntiCovid app) or in paper form (proof of vaccination or test result). They include a QR code that will be scanned on entry into the venue or event. 

IMPORTANT!!! Please not that currently , truck drivers remain exempt from presenting it in order to have lunch, dinner and wash up in truck restaurants. These truck restaurants will have to be approved by the government in order to be able to provide services without the health pass.

The objective is to allow truck drivers to get the most essential services without the health pass, so they do not have to provide a QR Code or a health pass, just their driver card, to prove their profession

In addition, it should be noted that during delivery operations in establishments where the public must present a health pass, drivers and delivery personnel are exempt from presenting this pass.

For the moment transport businesses will not be influenced by health pass requirement which is already implemented in many EU countries.

Please find more info about the decree on sanitary measures applicable as of August 9 (n°2021-1059 of August 7, 2021 amending decree n° 2021-699 of June 1, 2021) .
