Deconfinement, curfew … What changes on May 19 in France

May 19 marks a new stage in the progressive deconfinement planned by the government.

The Covid is regressing, vaccination is progressing, in short, the situation is gradually improving in France. And, as promised in Emmanuel Macron’s announcements on May 3, a next step in deconfinement will take place this Wednesday, May 19. We take stock of what will change.

Since May 3, there is no longer any question of certification for your trips of 10 km or more. No more limit if you want to leave your department or region. But the curfew had remained firmly in place at 7 p.m. This will therefore be one of the main measures in place on May 19: the reduction of the curfew to 9 p.m. Convenient for slightly late weekend returns, or stuck in traffic. But beware: derogatory certificates will be necessary after this time.

Cinemas, bars and restaurants reopen

Another major deconfinement measure on May 19: the reopening of cinemas, theaters, and other places of culture (museums, libraries, open-air festivals, etc.). All with reception capacity gauges (35% of seats in a cinema, for example). The same also applies to weddings, PACS, and funeral ceremonies.

Same thing for bars and restaurants, who will again be able to to welcome customers, but on the terrace only and at 50% of their capacity. “Non-essential” stores and departments are also preparing to reopen their doors. The outdoor sport will also be authorized again, including amateur competitions, provided they are “contactless”.

What about trips to Europe?

Finally, students and seniors will be able to gradually return to a normal life. Higher education reopens its doors to 50%, while nursing home residents will be able to see their loved ones more easily.
