Justice suspends the obligation of the health passport in the shopping centers of the Haut-Rhin

On Friday the administrative court of Strasbourg suspends the obligation to present a health passport in seven shopping centers of the Haut-Rhin.

A judge from the administrative court of Strasbourg decided this Friday, August 27, to suspend the decree of the prefect of the Haut-Rhin which made it compulsory to present a health passport in seven shopping centers of the department with more than 20.000 square meters.

The judge ruled that the obligation to present the health passport, “carried a serious and obviously illegal attack on the freedom to come and go”. The restrictive measures imposed in the contested decree apply in a general and absolute way to all the shops located in the department stores and shopping centers listed in the decree, without anything being provided to allow customers without a pass to access the shops selling essential goods and services.
