People who do not wish to use the TousAntiCovid application will be able to print their QR code on a paper document, announced earlier this month the health authorities who had recalled the need to also present an identity document.

In addition, the mask will be mandatory “On all the devices of the Tour de France”, indicated Christian Prudhomme, the director of the Tour, to Franceinfo.
