MARIGOT: Free testing was extended until December 6, 2021, beyond the end of the state of health emergency in our territories, in order to allow the implementation of a new methodology for monitoring the epidemic, including the seroprevalence study conducted by Santé Publique France.
This study has not yet been completed and the decrease in the number of tests linked to the social crisis does not allow the validation of the new methodology of epidemic monitoring.
In addition, a clear relaxation of barrier measures has been observed in the context of the social crisis. It is not excluded that this will generate an epidemic rebound in the next two weeks.
Finally, as the monitoring of the vaccination obligation and the dialogue phase with health professionals should end on December 31, the two dates have been made consistent.
