Vaccinated Europeans will be Able to Enter France Without PCR Test

From June 9, Europeans vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to enter France, without having to present proof of a negative PCR test, French Minister of Transport Jean-Baptiste Djebbari announced on Cnews on Friday.

The Covid-19 pandemic has infected more than 172 million people around the world and is approaching the threshold of 3.7 million deaths, according to the latest official data available this Friday morning. Main hope: vaccination. Now, more than 2 billion doses of vaccine have been injected around the world.

In France, the vaccination campaign is continuing its pace. The High Authority for Health is now advocating a phased opening of adolescent vaccination. Italy, the European country most affected by the pandemic after the United Kingdom, has also decided to open vaccination to people over 12 years old.

Vaccinated Europeans will be able to enter France without a PCR test from June 9, announced this Friday Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, on Cnews. Likewise, the French will be able to travel to Europe thanks to the “green pass” which has been tested in Corsica in particular, the minister said.

“I confirm that from next Wednesday, we will lighten the health rules that apply in companies, in particular on teleworking”, confirmed this Friday morning on LCI, Elisabeth Borne, Minister of Labor, Employment and Insertion.

“But we will not go at all to nothing and we must remain very careful” from that date, insisted the minister. “There is no national rule […] It must be on the basis of the employee’s voluntary service”, indicates the minister who specifies that “a discussion must take place between the management of the companies and their trade unions to set the number of days of telework from June 9 ”. And to recall that the executive “recommends three days of teleworking as in the public service”.

The committee chaired by Benoît Coeure on the evaluation of the recovery plan is to hold its first meeting this Friday, before a first report expected in mid-October on the main measures. Work on the way out of the crisis is increasing, at a time when the executive wants to show that it is ready to resume the path of reforms.

This Friday’s meeting should make it possible to respond to one of the requests formulated by the mission letter of the Prime Minister, Jean Castex: “Propose a list of 10 to 15 measures on which the evaluation work will focus. ”
