Day 90 – 3rd day of de-confinement phase III


The summer solstice is approaching fast. We can only hope that it will bring the real, hot summer we have all been longing for in this part of the world.

Following yesterday’s comments, there is an additional 6 clusters in the past 24 hours and the number of cases is still increasing at an average rate of 446 per day for the past 7 days. That number is official but too low since there is no systematic testing. I’ll be glad when I start seing this number seriously decreasing.

In the meantime Stay Safe

The official statement – Phase III

Since 15 June 2020, the whole of France has been classified as a green zone, with the exception of French Guiana and Mayotte, which remain classified as orange because health indicators are still worrying.

This means that all cafés and restaurants can now open their doors, while respecting health regulations: no more than 10 customers per table, a metre between each table, mandatory wearing of masks for staff and customers when moving around the establishment.

All school and college students must return to school by June 22, 2020. Sanitary measures are relaxed. A physical distance of at least one metre applies only in classrooms and all enclosed spaces, between the teacher and pupils and between each pupil when they are side by side or facing each other. Reception is provided in groups that cannot mix.

On the same date, the crèches must reopen according to the normal attendance rules.
The ban on gatherings of more than 10 people on the public highway or in a place open to the public imposed by the state of health emergency remains in force. However, at the request of the Council of State, which had been seized of the matter, demonstrations subject to the requirement of a prior declaration are once again authorized. The participants must not be more than 5,000 and must respect the health rules (physical distance of at least one metre between people, wearing a mask when this distance is not guaranteed, barrier gestures).

No event with more than 5,000 people is permitted until August 31, 2020.

In addition, the prefecture of the Île-de-France region has announced that as of 16 June 2020 the employer’s certificate is no longer mandatory to take public transport during rush hours. Wearing a mask is still mandatory.
