Pass sanitaire (health pass): making your visit completely safe

Which tourist attractions will require the health pass?

Get answers to any questions you may have about the extended use of the health pass from 21 July: everything you need to know to get ready for your visit to the Pinault Collection Exhibition, visit the Tourist Office or book a tourist attraction.

Do I need a health pass to visit the Pinault Collection exhibition?

Yes. Like all cultural and leisure venues with a capacity of more than 50 people, the Couvent des Jacobins is affected by the extended use of the health pass from 21 July 2021 (Order n° 2021-955 of 19 July, 2021). Therefore, to visit the exhibition, you must show a valid health pass with either:

a certificate showing you are fully vaccinated;


proof of a negative test within the last 48 hours (RT-PCR or antigen);


a certificate showing you have recovered from COVID-19.

What documents do I need to visit the exhibition?

The health pass is a QR code to be shown and scanned, either digitally (on the TousAntiCovid app) or on paper, on entry at 20 Place Sainte-Anne.

How is the check carried out and how is my data stored?

The health pass is checked with the official TousAntiCovidVerif app. The data (name, first name, date of birth and positive or negative result) are only processed once when the QR Code is scanned and are not stored on the app.

Do young people between 12 and 17 years old require the health pass?

No. The health pass requirement will not come into effect until 30 September for 12 to 17 year olds.

Do I need to wear a mask inside the Couvent des Jacobins?

Yes, masks must be worn by everyone (11 years old and over) to visit the exhibition. Social distancing rules also apply while visiting.

I have already purchased a ticket for the Pinault Collection exhibition, can I get a refund if I don’t want to show a health pass?

No. According to our general terms and conditions of sale, the ticket is non-exchangeable and non-refundable, unless the event is cancelled by Destination Rennes. If you have not yet had the opportunity to be vaccinated, you can get into the exhibition by showing a negative test from within the last 48 hours.

Do I need a valid health pass to visit the Tourist Office (1 rue Saint-Malo)?

Yes, a health pass is required to enter the Tourist Office and ask for information from our advisors. Wearing a mask is still mandatory in the venue and we also invite you to follow the flow of foot traffic indicated on the floor to respect social distancing rules.

Are guided tours organised by the Tourist Office affected by the health pass?

No, the guided tours offered by the Tourist Office outdoors do not require a health pass because their attendance limit never exceeds 50 people. Only the guided tours of the exhibition at the Jacobins Convent, the visit of Parliament and Roazhon Park are affected.

Are the ticket offers advertised by the partners of the Tourist Office affected by the extended use of the health pass?

It depends. Depending on the attendance limit and the layout (museums, concert halls, leisure activities, etc.), a health pass may be required for visiting certain venues. Before booking a ticket, we recommend contacting each event organizer directly for information.

Is the sanitary pass necessary for bars and restaurants?

Yes, since August 9, it is necessary to present a valid health pass to go to a restaurant, bar or café, including on terrace.

What other cultural and leisure venues require the health pass in Rennes?

From Wednesday, 21 July, the health pass is mandatory for visiting swimming pools, museums (Musée des beaux-arts, Ecomusée de la Bintinais, Champs Libres), theaters, festivals, sporting events and public access buildings (ERP) with a capacity of more than 50 people. As for cinemas, some venues limit the capacity to less than 50 people so you do not require a health pass on entry. Specific signs are displayed in the venues requiring the health pass.
