From this Monday, the country enters the first phase of deconfinement. Travel is no longer limited and does not have to be justified during the day.

After a month of confinement, the French resume this Monday with a semblance of normality. Designed gradually, deconfinement begins with the lifting of travel restrictions.

Thus, the inhabitants of France will be able to move beyond a radius of ten kilometers around their home, which was previously impossible for them without a compelling reason. They will also no longer have to justify their comings and goings during the day. Since the beginning of April, leaving his home was only allowed to go to work, practice a sporting activity or even provide assistance to a loved one. Travel certificates, which presented these different reasons, are therefore no longer necessary during the day.

On the other hand, any travel between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. must be linked to one of these “compelling reasons”, the curfew still being in effect until May 19. “Non-essential” businesses such as places of culture cannot reopen either, and outdoor gatherings are still limited to six people.

This very gradual resumption also marks the return of face-to-face classes in half-gauge for middle and high school students. On this occasion, the French Prime Minister Jean Castex and the Minister of National Education Jean-Michel Blanquer made the trip to the Emmanuel Héré high school in Laxou, near Nancy. The objective: to focus on the self-tests distributed in schools in France. Note that according to the latest figures from the Regional Health Agency, 597 new covid cases were detected in the metropolis of Nancy on April 30.
