Starting from May 11th, 2020, we will say goodbye to the confinement fine. But while France is launching a new phase in the fight against coronavirus, new rules are implemented. In which cases do we risk a containment exit fine?
On May 7th, 2020, several ministers spoke in turn to give details as for the end of confinement which first phase starts from May 11th, 2020. If from now on we will no longer have to justify our outings with a mandatory derogatory trip certificate, this containment exit comes with a couple of other bans:
From now on, facemasks are mandatory in all public transit from 11 years old. Not respecting this rule will be punished by a €135 fine. It is the same for those getting aboard a TGV without booking before, as it is now indispensable since trains are limited to 50% of their capacity.
Starting from May 11th, 2020 within Île-de-France public transit, the access at peak hours will be now reserved for users holding a certificate from their employers saying they are commuting to go practice their professional activities, and trips will have to be justified by a compelling reason. If there is no justification, a €135-fine will be given to transgressors.
