Shopping centers at the time of the health pass
After a week of trial and error, the health pass finally comes into force this Monday in a hundred shopping centers in France. The law provided that the prefects could impose it in those of more than 20,000 m2 if the health situation required it. Then the government toughened up the tone and provided for the pass to be imposed in the centers located in the departments where the incidence rate exceeds 200 cases of Covid per 100,000 inhabitants. The decision remains in the hands of the prefects, who took their first decrees last week.

In Paris, the prefecture finally imposed it, even if the incidence rate does not quite reach 200 cases. But the health situation there is deteriorating, and the incidence rate is clearly above 200 among 10-40 year olds. The pass will therefore apply in three Parisian shopping centers (Vill'Up, Italie 2 and Beaugrenelle), in Aéroville and in department stores (Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, Le Bon Marché, La Samaritaine and BHV Marais). They were given a short reprieve. The prefecture thought to impose the health pass in Paris last week. Galeries Lafayette had even implemented control last Monday. But the decree of the prefect was long overdue.
Like the restaurateurs, the traders concerned fear that the control of the pass will cause a drop in attendance, all the more so as customers have the choice of making their purchases in other places such as city centers, where the pass sanitary is not in force.
