As of 22 June France is now in the 3rd phase of “déconfinement“, the relaxation of lockdown rules.

Cinemas, holiday centres, sports halls for group sports, all crèches, schools, and collèges are fully open but with strict adherence to sanitary regimes.

Earlier in June restrictions were lifted on restaurants, bars, travel distances, tourist accommodation, parks and more. The 2nd phase also saw the end of the 100km travel limit restriction so people are now free to travel without carrying documents proving their purpose of travel. Residents now no longer need to carry an attestation form to travel further than 100km from their home, and the limit has been dropped.

Hotels, restaurants, gites, B&B’s, cafes, parks and gardens were also opened during the 2nd phase.

France is still under an official ‘state of health emergency’ whereby government can fast track legislation and local authorities have the power to restrict movements, stop gatherings, festivals, concerts etc in their own departments if they deem these to be a health risk.

The state of health emergency is due to end on July 10, but might be extended.
