(Bloomberg) – France is tightening up travel rules in the country in a bid to contain the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus, government spokesman Gabriel Attal said on Wednesday.
Travelers from outside the European Union will be required to provide a negative test taken within 48 hours before entering France, even if they are vaccinated, Attal told reporters after advice ministers weekly.

Travelers from the EU will be asked to provide a test carried out less than 24 hours before arrival, only if they are not vaccinated.

“We are worried more and more every day,” said Attal. “We are not panicking but we have to be as careful as possible. “

There are 13 suspected cases of people who could be infected with the omicron variant in France, according to Attal.
