The mayor of Nice is back pedaling on the obligation of the health pass for children to go to leisure centers.

On Twitter, he announced this Saturday morning that the city of Nice will offer and recommend to families saliva tests "to avoid an increased circulation of the virus and the total closure of the centers which would penalize parents and children".

Saliva tests but no health pass for our leisure and holiday centers.

La @VilledeNice offers and recommends to families these saliva tests to avoid an increased circulation of the virus and the total closure of the centers which would penalize parents and children.

The director general of the services of the Alpes-Maritimes, Lauriano Azinheirinha, returned to this measure, indicating that these tests will remain "optional".

Friday evening, Christian Estrosi had announced, contrary to the will of the government to want to exempt the youngest from the health pass until September 30, to make it compulsory to access the city's leisure centers. "Otherwise, children will not be admitted to our structures," wrote the city's children's department, in an email sent to parents and revealed by Nice-Matin. This was to come into effect on Wednesday July 28.

Another measure decided by the town hall: the obligation of a health pass for the staff of the leisure centers from Monday, July 26.

"Only staff with a health pass will be able to exercise and this from Monday," said Christian Estrosi in Nice-Matin.

The mayor of Nice had also indicated that he wanted to extend this obligation to other members of municipal staff in contact with the public, such as "town planning, civil status or even social services".

Facilitators and staff who are not vaccinated must present a test to ensure the best possible protection.

Except that these measures raised a question of legality. A priori, it is the prefect who must take measures of this kind and not the municipality. This is why Christian Estrosi also backtracked for the staff of the leisure centers who will just have to present "a test in order to ensure the best possible protection".
