Healthy Brown
Information for Undergraduate Students

Daily Life

On March 14, France suspended the use of the vaccine pass as well as most indoor mask requirements.  Under the new rules:

  • Access to restaurants, bars, museums, and the other locations where a pass was previously required no longer requires a vaccine pass or a health pass.
  • Access to hospitals and nursing homes does require a health pass for non-emergency visits. As a reminder, for those not fully vaccinated, a temporary, 24-hour health pass can be obtained with a negative COVID test. 
  • Masks may still be worn, and businesses can set their own mask requirements.

 

Currently, individuals must provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination as well as proof of a negative  PCR or Antigen test dated 24-hours prior to international travel  (except if traveling to France from the European Union and Schengen Area countries). See this link for country-specific information: https://mobile.interieur.gouv.fr/Actualites/L-actu-du-Ministere/Attestation-de-deplacement-et-de-voyage

Public transportation is currently functioning normally. Masks are required in all stations as well as on board all transportation.

All stores are now operating at normal business hours.  Masks and the “pass sanitaire” are no longer required in order to access them.

Arrival Procedures

As of October 6, 2021, vaccinated travelers are not obligated to quarantine.
