On August 10, Health Minister Christian Dubé held a press conference to explain the details surrounding Quebec's vaccine passport, including which non-essential activities and places will require it.

"To avoid reconfinement, we're going to use the vaccine passport," Dubé said. The health minister stressed that the return to offices and schools for Quebecers and the "prevalence of the Delta variant" are conditions Dubé believes are enough to need to impose the vaccination passport.

The idea of the vaccine passport is to only give access to fully vaccinated Quebecers to two types of spaces: public events with many people, like festivals and indoor events with large capacities, and places with high contact rates, including bars, restaurants and gyms.

Instead of having to close these non-essential activities and places again, only those who are fully vaccinated will be able to enter them as of September 1.

To prepare for September 1, tests will be done with a QR code app. On August 11 and 12, a pilot project will be tested with a La Cage Brasserie Sportive in Quebec to make sure everything functions smoothly with the app.

The following week, another test will be done with a gym, an Éconofitness in Laval, in which fully vaccinated people will have to show their QR code upon entry into the establishment.
