Official Communication – Healthy Pass

From July 21, 2021

Following the latest government announcements, from July 21, 2021, the Health Pass will be compulsory for all people (aged 18 and over) wishing to access Historial of the Great War (Péronne museum).

The Health Pass is not compulsory at the Thiepval museum : the maximum capacity is 49 people until further notice.

The Health Pass will be compulsory for adolescents (12 to 17 years old inclusive) from August 30, 2021.

Before July 21, you do not need to take a PCR test or be vaccinated to access Historial of the Great War.

What is the Health Pass?

The health pass consists of the presentation, digital (via the TousAntiCovid application) or paper, of health proof, among the following three:

  1. RT-PCR screening exam or antigen test within 48 hours.
  2. Proof of complete vaccination status, 7 days after.
  3. A certificate of recovery from covid-19 contamination.

ID will also be required at checkpoints.

Health protocol

Historial of the Great War offers you the best possible conditions for your visit.

Instructions for our visiting soldiers

The General Staff therefore requires :

  • The obligation to check your health pass (QRCode and identity document)
  • To leave 1.50 m between the ranks except for “Pal’s battalions”* ; they may regroup.
  • To advance masked : mandatory from 11 years old and strongly advised from 6 years old. Nose, mouth and chin should be covered.
  • The use of neutralising gel is mandatory from the entrance of the fortress.
  • Forward march : any backtracking is impossible (an entrance on the château side, an exit towards the back of the museum and one-way visit)
  • To cross No man’s land in commando mode : be constantly discreet and vigilant, cough and sneeze into your elbow without removing the mask, throw tissues and used masks into the bins.

Our recruiting sergeants are obliged to refuse entry to any visitor who does not comply with the rules.

*Pal’s bataillion : reference to British battalions formed by soldiers from the same village, the same school…
Members of the same household are exempt from this constraint.
