San­i­tary Measures


We fol­low close­ly the offi­cial rec­om­men­da­tions from the French gov­ern­ment (includ­ing the trav­el infor­ma­tion for Europe).

On site, in Bordeaux

  • The flow of cir­cu­la­tion is reg­u­lat­ed – entrance and exit are separated;
  • Fab­ric masks are not allowed any­more: only med­ical masks (also known as sur­gi­cal masks) and res­pi­ra­tor masks (ie.: FFP2) are allowed.
  • Masks are manda­to­ry indoors, also when peo­ple are seated;
  • Masks are also manda­to­ry out­side, in the city cen­ter of Bordeaux
  • Reg­u­lar use of hydro-alco­holic gel is also recommended.

The Vac­cine Pass in France

On 16 Jan­u­ary, the French Nation­al Assem­bly has vot­ed the enforce­ment of the Vac­cine pass” which will replace the Health Pass. 

  • The Vac­cine Pass will be enforced on 24 Jan­u­ary, it will be required to show a full vac­ci­na­tion scheme to access restau­rants and bars, cul­tur­al venues, pro­fes­sion­al fairs, among oth­ers (see more infor­ma­tion here).
    The full vac­ci­na­tion scheme includes a 3rd shot 7 months after the 2nd shot. On 15 Feb­ru­ary, the delay between the 2nd shot and 3rd shot will be reduced to 4 months.
  • A cer­tifi­cate of Covid recov­ery (at least 11 days, less than 6 months old) stays a valid option for the Vac­cine Pass
  • A neg­a­tive Covid-19 test will no longer be sufficient.
