Ending the measure extending the health pass requirement to include certain workers essential for the continuity of public sectors

The High Commissioner received a complaint from two collectives, one consisting of private sector employees, and the other made up of civil servants and State officials, challenging the decision to extend the requirement to show a valid health pass to include certain employees of private companies and/or civil servants considered as “performing essential public services”, in order to access their place of work and carry out their job. While taking the view that it was legitimate for the Government, given developments in terms of the pandemic, to seek to strengthen ways of guaranteeing the continuity of essential public services, the High Commissioner recommended that this measure not be renewed in its current form, beyond the expiry date initially fixed and liable to be extended.

The entire recommendation is available on the site in french version only.
