On Thursday January 21, the authorities announced a tightening of sanitary rules. Objective: to better trace any contact cases and strengthen barrier actions, in order to better fight against the spread of the more contagious variants of the coronavirus. Social distancing is now extended to two meters, down from one meter so far.
Reinforced controls for foreign travelers
Regarding masks, only surgical and category 1 fabric masks are now authorized. It will therefore be necessary to forget the “homemade” masks and those of category 2, considered as less filtering. Finally, at the borders, from Sunday January 24, most travelers wishing to return to France will have to present a negative PCR test of less than 72 hours, including citizens from the European Union.
