By December 1, 2021, all individuals aged 12 and beyond will have to present a Covid-19 health pass before entering the Cameroonian embassy in Paris. The decision was reported Wednesday by the Cameroonian Ambassador in France, Magnus Ekoumou.
The pass will consist of a certificate of vaccination "on the condition of having a complete vaccination schedule", proof of a negative screening test (RT-PCR test) less than 72 hours old or the result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid-19, at least 11 days old, and less than 6 months old. The measure concerns staff members as well as users and visitors. However, it "will not be applied to people with a medical certificate of contraindication to vaccination," said the ambassador. The wearing of masks remains compulsory.
The health pass has been in force in France since June 9, 2021. It is either a paper or a QR Code that allows access to public or private places as well as events or activities involving more than 1,000 people. This measure comes at a time when France is hit by the fifth wave of Covid-19, marked by a continuous increase in contaminations.
