Day 86 – 11th day of de-confinement phase II


It is interesting to note that between 1ᵉʳ May and 1 June 2020, 49,178 deaths were recorded in France 3% less than in 2019.

France will lift at midnight on 15 June all traffic restrictions put in place to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

People coming from countries in the European area (European Union member states as well as Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican) will therefore be able to enter French territory without restrictions, with the exception of Spain and the United Kingdom. As these two countries apply restrictions, France will continue to apply reciprocity.

Spain has chosen to maintain its traffic restrictions until 21 June, air passengers from Spain will in turn be invited to make a fortnight’s quarantine in France on arrival until 21 June. Passengers from the United Kingdom will no longer be subject to entry restrictions into France from 15 June but will remain, “until further notice”, invited to observe a fortnight quarantine on arrival. I am not too sure how that can work.
