In the run-up to the presidential elections, the French Interior Ministry laid out a health protocol for polling stations last week.

The vaccine pass or a negative Covid-19 test result will not be required to enter. However, while wearing masks and social distancing will not be mandatory, masks are recommended for the elderly, vulnerable, and those who have tested positive for Covid-19.
