The widespread of the Covid pass, implemented in France on Wednesday, July the twenty-first 2021, raises a lot of questions. Do we have to show a Covid pass in order to play at the Lock Academy? Taking effect August the ninth, it will be mandatory! Let us explain why!

The sanitary situation caused by Covid 19, definitely changes the way we plan our favorites hobbies. Our indoor activity establishment did set up a strengthened sanitary protocol as soon as it re-opened mid-2020. However, the widespread access to the vaccination has changed the government strategy. Indeed, at first in many cultural, entertaining sites, and then for all the bars and restaurants, it is now mandatory to produce a sanitary or health pass.

What is a Covid pass?

As a reminder, a « Covid pass » consists in showing a digital or paper proof of one of those 3:

  1. Vaccination
    • 7 days after the second injection for two-dose vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca)
    • 4 weeks after the injection for single-dose vaccines (Johnson&Johnson)
    • 7 days after the injection for people who have previously had COVID 19 (only one injection needed)
  2. The proof of a negative test (made less than 72 hours before). Every PCR tests and antigenic tests can be used as a proof, as soon as you get the result from a medical worker. Many pharmacies near the Lock Academy propose those tests and give you a result in approximately 15 minutes.
  3. The result of a positive PCR test or an antigenic test attesting that you recovered from covid (dating from at least 11 days and from less than 6 months)

Until September the 30th at least, people aged less than 18 years old do not have to produce a covid pass.
