Although restrictions have been eased, he stated that the epidemic is not over and that the government will not hesitate to act quickly “if the pandemic once again threatens the essential functioning of society.”

The requirement to present a Covid-19 pass in order to gain access to businesses such as cinemas, gyms and hair salons will also be lifted on the 1st of September. However, it will remain in place for nightclubs until September 10th.
