France is placed under curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. from January 16, 2020. Derogatory certificates are yet possible but limited. And whoever says curfew also says the return of the derogatory trip certificates: 3 certificates are available to help you prove the necessity of your trip. These documents are to print out, copy on paper or fill in on your smartphone including via the TousAntiCovid app.

A new step of measures to curb the propagation of the coronavirus epidemic has been made. This Saturday January 16, 2021, the entire country is under extended curfew, brought forward to 6 p.m. for at least 2 weeks. Even though we can freely get out for the day, head ot a place of worship, or a store, or a beauty salon, as soon as night falls, you have to prove your credentials and each trip will have to be justified. 

This January 14, Prime Minister announced new measures to ease lockdown off. Even though it is not recommended to head to friends' or host big family reunions (naming the 6 adult-limit recommendation), you can enjoy a greater liberty of movement, specifically to go shopping, go to a religious service, enjoy a walk in the open air, or take care of yourself.

Each trip still has to be proven with a motive. For each trip, you will have to download and fill in a certificate from the government website or the websites of the Ministry of Health and the Secretary of the Interior.

Note that certificates are also available on smartphone via the TousAntiCovid application, as it was during curfew.

For this new curfewtwo certificates will be available. You have: the derogatory trip certificate to prove the necessity of your trip, as well as the professional certificate if you are heading to your workplace. 

For the record, you cannot go out past 6 p.m. and for another reason that those allowed. If you happen to be out without a certificate, you can be fined €135 and up to €3,750 and six months' jail.
