TOUSANTICOVID ALLOWS YOU TO CHANGE THE FRENCH HEALTH PASS INTO A EUROPEAN CERTIFICATE
Since June 9, the TousAntiCovid application has had a section dedicated to the French health pass. As part of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, it is now required to present your health pass to access certain public events of more than 1,000 people. Our French health pass has been integrated since June 15, 2021 in the European health certificate, which mainly allows European travelers to avoid going through the quarantine stage in countries that practice this measure. Since this Thursday, July 1, 2021, users holding a French health pass (whether they are vaccinated, declared negative via a PCR test, or certified as recovered), can automatically exchange it for a European health pass from the TousAntiCovid application. ,

Reconditioners, directly affected, could in the future decide to increase the price of devices to amortize the cost of the new tax.
