Day 53 in Carcassonne
5th Day of the 8th week of confinement
I finally found a statement from our Mayor which states that the curfew order that was introduced for the town will no longer be in force from May 11th.
It will be necessary to wait a few more days before knowing the list of the monuments and forest massifs which could reopen to the public in the Aude.
Sophie Elizéon, Prefect of the Aude, announced that a working meeting on this subject was scheduled for today Saturday, with a “case-by-case” examination of each of the sites that could be concerned. On May 7th, in a press release, she had indicated that “access to the forest, castles, abbeys and the banks of the Canal du Midi will once again be possible by strictly respecting the measures of distancing and the prohibition of gatherings of more than 10 people”.
The Lac de la Cavayere is probably on the list to be discussed.

For those who had issues switching to the so-called gallery view during our conference video call last evening, here is a tutorial. I believe however that you need to download the Zoom App rather than start Zoom from your browser. This is applicable to phones, tablets and PCs.
