Faced with the tidal wave of contamination due to the Omicron variant, the government announced on Monday new health restriction measures such as the compulsory use of telework in the companies concerned or the return of gauges for public events.

The executive also decided to speed up the timetable for the bill transforming the health pass into a vaccination pass, which will be discussed on Monday in the National Assembly and then on January 5 in the Senate with an implementation expected on January 15.
