COVID prevention tools
In France, the wearing of a mask is mandatory in all closed places welcoming people and, outdoors, in places where there are many people (streets, parks, etc.). Note that surgical masks are preferable to home-made masks, but both are currently accepted.
Besides, respect as much as possible the barrier measures: wear a mask, keep your hands clean, avoid to shake hands, avoid kisses, keep a distance from others, open windows or doors when indoors, cover coughs and sneezes, blow your nose in a single-use tissue.
For many situations (events, restaurants, museums visits, etc.), the French parliament has recently voted new rules about the COVID certificate (passe sanitaire, displayed in a QR code format) to apply as of 15 January 2022 until 31 July 2022.
Both COVID certificate (passe sanitaire) + wearing a mask will be asked to attend MMiN meeting. The mask could be temporarily removed only during the meals or coffee-breaks.
The COVID certificate (passe sanitaire) is currently issued to people who have tested negative (PCR or antigenic tests not older than 24 h), who recovered from COVID-19, or who have been fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines recognized by the European Medicines Agency or one of the equivalents to these vaccines.
From January 15 2022, the validity of the COVID certificate (passe sanitaire) will be conditioned as follows:
- By a 3rd vaccination injection for people (>18) being previously vaccinated by two doses. The 3rd dose has to be injected not later than 7 months after the second dose.
- By a 2nd vaccination injection not longer than 6 months for people (>18) being previously vaccinated by one dose.
- By a 2nd vaccination injection for people (12-17) being previously vaccinated by one dose.
- By a certificate attesting recovery from COVID-19 (the details about the length of validity are currently missing.
If you plan to come to France with your family, note that the COVID certificate is currently not required for children (0-11). The French government should announce new specific rules about the certificates for children and teenagers in January 2022.

How to get a COVID certificate available in France
EU citizens can use the EU Digital COVID Certificate as a digital proof.
If you have not been vaccinated in a European Union Member State, Albania, Andorra, Faroe Islands, Holy See, Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Morocco, North Macedonia, Norway, Panama, San Marino, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine or the United Kingdom (England and Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland), these countries issue EU Digital COVID Certificates or an equivalent that are accepted by France.
For the other non-EU citizens, in order to facilitate the stay in France, a specific system has been put in place to issue a QR code valid as a COVID certificate in France. Please see the following link for details:

Contact tracing
The French TOUSANTICOVID application will be used to trace COVID contacts during your stay in France, including at MMiN meeting, for contact tracing. You can download it in your smartphones.
Protect yourself and others: download the #TOUSANTICOVID app! (sorry, the website is in French!)


The App will be used to scan your QR code when welcoming you every day at MMiN meeting, but also in restaurants, museums, etc. The checking of your QR codes will be done by authorized people.
