โ–ซ๏ธCurfew: Today marks the start of a new de-confinement period. The 20km radius and 3 hours time limit are no longer valid. Travelling to all regions of France is now allowed. Insted a new curfew takes effect between the hours of 8pm to 6am. FOr us in Carcassonne, it is the 2nd curfew we are experiencing this year. Who would have thought this a year ago?

โ–ซ๏ธAs Minister Olivier Vรฉran reiterated this morning, “it is not because a test is negative today that we are not contagious on Christmas Eve“.
The best Christmas is the one in small groups (if at all).
At the risk of overburdening professionals and clogging up laboratories, it is obviously not desirable to be tested every day. The test solution is not bad in itself but it is necessary, if you are negative, to continue to be careful during the holidays. On New Year’s Eve, masks should be worn, and hand washing and distance should be maintained especially, the doctors keep hammering at it, if we are all tested and everyone is sure to be negative. You never know, since the tests are not 100% reliable and there are false negatives. Let’s not forget, therefore, that the best Christmas this year is the one in small groups (if at all).

๐Ÿ”นCurfew” travel certificates

The new attestation to download and / or fill up on line is available in the usual Government web page here. It is also available in English at the same address. The easiest way of course is to use the “Tous Anti Covid” app which allows you to generate the certificate on your phone with 2 clicks.

๐Ÿ”นA new variant of coronavirus has been found which is growing faster in some parts of England.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said at least 60 different local authorities had recorded Covid infections caused by the new variant. He said the World Health Organization had been notified and UK scientists were doing detailed studies.He said there was “nothing to suggest” it caused worse disease or that vaccines would no longer work.

๐Ÿ”น US Elections

Joe Biden took another step towards the White House on Monday, December 14. Unsurprisingly, state by state, the electorate confirmed his victory announced on November 7, but which a majority of Republicans led by Donald Trump still refuses to admit. The Democrat officially became the future 46th president of the United States when California, which he had won by a large margin on the evening of November 3, brought him his votes, putting an end to a suspense artificially maintained by the outgoing president.

Speaking a few hours later in Wilmington, his adopted city of Delaware, Joe Biden did not hide his satisfaction. He paid a heartfelt tribute to the foundations of American democracy, tested, he said, by Donald Trump’s repeated accusations of “fraud”, but for which his lawyers were unable to provide the slightest proof.

I staed up to listen to the speech live

Next hurdle before January 20th is the certification by Congress on January 6th.
