Reminder of national measures
What changed on 2 June (extract from the Government website)

The situation is improving at an encouraging pace, the result of each person’s commitment and the work of all those who have mobilised against the epidemic – in particular healthcare workers and local elected representatives.

New activities will now be possible again: cafés and restaurants, parks and gardens, museums, monuments and zoos, etc. There will be some special conditions – especially for regions classified as orange: Île-de-France, Guyana and Mayotte – in order to protect the health of each person.

In all cases, respecting the protective measures and physical distancing are the conditions for the success of this new phase of moving out of lockdown.
Protective measures
Protecting yourself and others
  • Wash your hands regularly or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or into a handkerchief
  • Blow your nose using a disposable tissue and dispose of it immediately
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Maintain a distance of at least one metre from other people
  • Greet people without shaking hands and don’t hug them
  • In addition to these measures, wear a mask if a one-metre distance cannot be respected
