30 days have passed since I arrived in Paris, and I have lived with the French government’s Covid-19 regulations.
In order to eat in a restaurant or drink a cafe on a terrace or see an exhibit in a museum or take the train to Marseille, I must show my passe sanitaire or other proof of vaccinations or show that I had a negative test for Covid-19 during the previous three days.
During the first 15 days I used my American issued CDC card, and that worked fine. No rejections. At some restaurants I had the sense my CDC card was their first experience with it, but they did know where to look and noted the date of the second shot.
On September 15 I received finally my passe sanitaire, the official government document with a OR code, for proof of vaccinations. I can present it in several ways. I chose the government application called TousAntiCovid. It is set up to display the OR code for the passe sanitaire.
(The photographs in this post were chosen haphazardly.)
I converted my passe to a PDF file, and I can show that without the government application. Others have printed their passe and offered that. (Click on any photo to see it larger and in more detail. Cliquez sur une vignette pour l’agrandir.)
During the 30 days only two places have not checked it, a restaurant, Café de la Mairie, and a cafe on Butte aux Cailles called Le Diamant. But wait, there’s more!
