rench Prime Minister Jean Castex announced last week that the reopening of casinos, among other businesses, has been postponed until at least the end of January.
After hoping to be able to reopen on December 15, then January 7, casinos must wait until the end of January to find out if they will be allowed to reopen in early February 2021, Sortiraparis.com reports.
“The conditions for reopening are not met,” said the Prime Minister. To avoid a third wave that France feels is coming, the government wants to minimize the flows and gatherings of people. “The health situation could be worse in January” if it opens on December 15. Jean Castex and his ministers have decided to postpone the reopening of public establishments to the first week of January 2021.
But as the conditions are still not met at the beginning of the year, the French Prime Minister announced that “all activities, facilities and premises closed will remain closed until the end of the month. Museums, cinemas, theaters, sports halls and leisure centers should not see the measures relaxed in the coming weeks ”. He added: “During this period of closure and limited works, the government will continue to financially support all sectors and actors directly affected by our measures. “
