Asked several times about how long this could last “break-in period” before the application of sanctions, Gabriel Attal replied: “I said there was a first break-in time. I didn’t tell you how long it would last.” “It will be quite limited, I don’t know, it will be a week, a little more. But once again, it should not be considered suddenly that this postpones the date of entry into force of the health pass”, he stressed.
The spokesperson reiterated that it would come into force for places of culture “from Wednesday” and for restaurants, bars “from the beginning of August, when the law will be promulgated”. “The health pass comes into effect on the dates that are scheduled. Simply at the start, the security forces mobilized to carry out checks will do so, not to check and ticket people, but to help them, accompany them”, he insisted.
