People in France now need to show a Covid health pass to enjoy usually routine activities such as going to a cafe or travelling on an intercity train.
The new plan championed by President Emmanuel Macron was put in place in an attempt to reduce Covid-19 infections and encourage vaccination.
It first came into effect on July 21, granting the holder access to any leisure or cultural venue across France with a capacity of more than 50 people, including museums and galleries.
But the government is now pressing ahead with the extension of the pass to cafés, restaurants, non-emergency care at hospitals and air and train travel.
