What are the lock-in restrictions in France?

In mid-June, the entire continent has been declared a “green zone” is an area where the virus is under control and the restrictions of the facility faster. Bars and restaurants are allowed to open both at the inside and outside areas, and all schools with the exception of secondary schools – have been fully reopened.

Gatherings of less than 10 persons are permitted, and even family visits to retirement homes have been permitted.

The beaches began reopening under strict restrictions, and the cinemas recently started re-opening.

What is the “official” travel tips for France?

Even if the mainland of France is now considered a “green” zone, it is useful to remember that some containment measures may still apply, depending on the department where you are.

The wearing of masks on public transport and taxis and private hire vehicles without the plexiglass, the screen remains mandatory for persons 11 years and older, with fines for those who do not comply.

This board took effect on March 17, and first applied for a period of 30 days, the travel ban is now listed as “undetermined”.

Travellers arriving in France from the UK is no longer required to demonstrate to the French authorities that their journey is essential, or the possession of a certificate of international transit, but they are encouraged to self-isolate for up to 14 days of arrival in metropolitan France.

Do I have to self-isolate when I’m back in the UK?
