Over 1,200 people have already been tested. The regional health agency (ARS) Paca announced Monday to launch a new coronavirus screening campaign among seasonal workers in Bouches-du-Rhône.

A first campaign launched in early June revealed 80 Covid-19 positive cases out of 1,264 people screened. This new campaign launched in partnership with the prefecture of Bouches-du-Rhône will "test people who were not tested last week and also to ensure screening at D + 7 of the people concerned," says ARS by press release.

A meeting held on Saturday allowed the establishment of a rapid procedure for reporting information between the mayors and the ARS, the establishment by the prefecture of a financial and logistical system to support the '' and details of the operational procedures for isolating those tested positive.
