**** Update March 2022: the Health Pass or Vaccination Pass are no longer requested since Monday March 14, 2022 ****

The widespread of the Covid pass and Vaccination pass raises a lot of questions. Do we have to show a pass in order to play at the Lock Academy? For over 12 years old, it’s 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 pass (12 to 15 yo) or vaccination pass (16 years old and more).

What is a Covid pass (or sanitary 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 24 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)

Since January the 24th 2022, people aged more than 16 years old needs to present a Vaccination pass ! The proof of a negative test isn’t enough in order to play.

Showing a pass for an Escape room in France is mandatory

The government official website confirms it. As a matter of fact, escape rooms are businesses where having a pass is mandatory.

Lock Academy Paris and Troyes now welcomes adults and children over 12 years old with a pass ! However, our game masters will have to keep their masks on during the whole experience. Visitors also will have to keep their masks on all the time.

Since August 9, the Covid pass is mandatory for each and every cultural and entertainment establishment like Escape Room.

However, a Covid pass or Vaccination pass will not be asked for our outdoor activity « Operation Mindfall ».
