Sanitary regulations

As you know very well, several sanitary regulations are currently in place to contain the Covid-19 pandemic: since they do have an impact on the organisation of scientific events like this one, it is important that we are all aware of them (https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus). The main things to keep in mind are the following:
  • A valid Health Pass is needed to enter the Kahn building. If you don’t have it, you will be asked to show a PCR or antigenic test. Please note that from Monday 29 November 2021, only PCR and antigenic tests of less than 24 hours will represent a valid evidence of a "health pass".
  • Wearing facemasks is mandatory in every closed space, including the meeting venue itself.
  • All standard sanitary precautions still apply: wash your hands frequently and carefully, maintain a safe distance from other people in closed spaces, do not go out if you are feeling unwell, and in general do your best to comply with both the recommendations of the health authorities and your own common sense.
