Cycling fans who want to watch the final stage of the Tour de France on the Champs-Élysées in Paris on Sunday must have a so-called corona pass with them and wear a mouth cap. The Tour organization reports that the obligation applies to all visitors aged 12 and older.
The Tour traditionally ends with a drive to Paris, which concludes with eight local laps through the French capital and along the Champs-Élysées.
The so-called sanitary pass will be mandatory in France from 21 July for adults when visiting major events and cultural institutions and from August also in cafes and restaurants, the French government announced this month. The pass indicates that someone has been vaccinated, recently tested or has already had Covid-19. During the celebration of the French national day on 14 July, visitors in Paris were also required to have this health card.
According to the regional health authorities, the number of infections in the Landes region was 38.8 per 100,000 inhabitants on Wednesday and the Delta variant is responsible for almost 74 percent of the positive cases.
