When the increase in COVID-19 cases cannot be prevented, curfews will be applied in Paris and 15 more regions. Prime Minister Jean Castex said the restrictions would not be as stringent as the previous ones, and that going out to play sports would be allowed.

Paris, the capital of France, and 15 regions are under stricter restrictions starting from midnight on Friday.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced new shutdown measures to combat the new increase in COVID-19 cases. He described the new measures as “balanced and necessary”.

The places that sell basic necessities will remain open

Parisians will only be allowed to leave their homes under certain conditions.

Restrictions will apply in Paris and the surrounding Ile-de-France region, as well as in Hauts-de-France and parts of Normandy in the north of the country.
Only places that sell essential goods will remain open.

Interregional travel will be banned and anyone traveling from home or more than 10km in the evening will need to complete a form explaining the purpose of their trip.

Schools will remain open and outdoor activities will be allowed.

Seeing the situation critical, the French government plans to continue with the new restrictions until mid-April.

Record increase in the number of cases

The increase in the number of cases could not be prevented in Paris, which has been struggling with the pandemic with partial restrictions for the last two months.

On Thursday, 34,998 new cases were registered, nearly seven times that of the UK.
