Emmanuel Macron addressed the health situation in France again on October 14, 2020. Facing the spread of coronavirus in the country, the French President announced a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. in Île-de-France and in 8 cities in France. Yet, the head of state said there will be neither limited transport, nor limited trips between regions.

A curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.: this is the main announcement to retain from October 14, 2020 on the new address of Emmanuel Macron. The French President has decreed a nighttime curfew in Île-de-France as well as 8 cities in France.

In case the curfew is broken, a €135 fine is planned and implemented starting this Saturday October 17. Yet, derogations are possible and mandatory trip certificates are back.

During the televised interview, Emmanuel Macron also made several announcements as for public transportation and said “the offer will be mustered” during curfew and there will be “no limited transport”.

As for leaving on holiday in France, the head of state has been clear: “We haven’t decided to limit trips between regions. We don’t prevent people from going from one region to another, but we ask them to respect citizen rules in the upcoming weeks and months”, he said. Going on vacation for Fall break is still possible but health guidelines will have to be maintained.
