In terms of collective catering, "

in the absence of a health pass in these places, and in the context of the resumption of the epidemic, we plan to return to a rule of two meters between each person at the table, as soon as the mask is not worn,

”the ministry said after a meeting with the social partners.

On moments of conviviality, the protocol - a reference document to ensure the health and safety of employees and the pursuit of economic activity in the face of Covid-19 - will specify that these moments are "no

longer recommended

".

"

If they are all the same organized, they must be done in the respect of barrier gestures, and in particular the distance of two meters between each person when the wearing of the mask can not be ensured

", specified the ministry.

The rules on ventilation will also be "

clarified

", the ministry highlighting "

an essential measure of prevention of situations of dissemination of the virus

".

No change on teleworking

On the other hand, with regard to teleworking, the government confirms that it does not plan, to date, to modify the protocol.

Minister Élisabeth Borne nonetheless invited employers "

to facilitate its deployment, taking into account the issues of work organization, the risks associated with the isolation of employees, or even the difficulty in respecting barrier gestures
