The Minister Delegate in charge of Tourism and SMEs, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, said Thursday that “all fairs and exhibitions are not affected by the gauges”.
“All fairs and shows are not affected by the gauges” set on Monday to curb the Omicron variant of the Covid-19, said the Minister Delegate in charge of Tourism and SMEs, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, on Thursday.
Zoos and amusement parks are also not affected by these new gauges set at 2,000 people maximum indoors and 5,000 outdoors from January 3, to curb the Omicron variant, added Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne on RMC.
“We make a distinction between static gatherings and places where we circulate”
“On the other hand, there is a health protocol that applies. This protocol specifies that it is necessary to set up traffic routes, to ensure that there is not too much proximity between people, etc … “, specified the minister. “We make a distinction between static gatherings and places where we circulate,” said Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne to justify this exemption.
For amusement parks, however, the gauge applies in projection room type spaces, detailed Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne.
The vaccination pass should also apply to fairs, shows, parks and zoos which are currently subject to the health pass, “since all places affected by the health pass switch to the vaccine pass on January 15”. The gauges announced by Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday evening should last three weeks, starting from Monday.
