It could be used from June 9 in stadiums, festivals, fairs or exhibitions. The health pass, which is based on a negative PCR test or a vaccination certificate, is already being tested in airports.
This is particularly the case at Orly, where passengers boarding for Corsica can present a health pass rather than a PCR test result on paper. Simpler, quicker to control and more reliable than paper declarations, this sesame should facilitate the resumption of air traffic this summer.
In practice, the health pass is included in the French application for tracing patients with the TousAntiCovid covid under the name “TousAntiCovid-Carnet”.
Concretely, all you have to do is present the application when boarding. A QR code is displayed, it corresponds to a negative PCR test certificate sent by the laboratory.
For the time being, TousAntiCovid-Carnet only hosts the negative results of the tests carried out. But the next step is to integrate vaccination or immunity certificates.
Overseas at the end of May, then Europe
“There are already 1,000 QR codes flashed“, since the start of the experiment on April 22.”We haven’t encountered any problems so far, things are going well“, welcomed Cédric O, Secretary of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communications on April 27.
The experimentation should extend by the end of May to overseas destinations, according to Cédric O. Then, it will open to flights to Germany, Spain and the Netherlands.
By the end of May-beginning of June, as soon as the State of Health Emergency law is adopted, vaccinated people will be able to do without a PCR test for trips to overseas or Corsica. #AllAntiCovidBook #Health Pass

For Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, Minister Delegate for Transport, this application allows “toavoid these phenomena of queues with the various documents that you must present before boarding or before depositing your luggage, to make life easier for passengers“. And to fight against fraud.
Less endless queues at the airport. Less fraud.
This is what will allow @AllAntiCovid-Notebook. We are currently experiencing it on our way to Corsica, and soon to Overseas.

The device should be standardized at European level by this summer. “The European Union has asked all countries to be ready by June 17“, reminds Cédric O. Each country”will have its application, obviously in an interoperable format between European countries“, anticipates finally Jean-Baptiste Djebbari.
