PARIS (Reuters) – French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said after the lifting of the coronavirus shutdown in France on May 11, the country’s borders will remain closed until further notice.
“Since the start of the crisis, border closings have been the rule, and permission to cross a border is the exception. We need to keep this protection in place, it will not change anytime soon, “Castaner said in a televised press conference.
He said the restrictions would remain in place until June 15 at least.
