Facemask-wearing, curfew, and anticipated closure, more and more restrictions have been instated in Paris and Île-de-France to curb the coronavirus epidemic all the way to the implementation of a new nationwide lockdown. But when will restrictions be eased off? First answers.

Restrictions have been multiplied in Paris and Île-de-France to face the second coronavirus epidemic wave.

But when will restrictions be eased?

Even though Île-de-France is not part of the areas the occupancy rate is the highest in France, patients could be transferred from regions where it is more preoccupying. But, after stagnating, the epidemic seems to surge again as the Holidays are just around the corner. By the way, a third wave is likely to occur by January 2021, past the Holiday celebrations.

Yet, in January 2021, the vaccine campaign is expected to have started in France already. In Paris, the City Hall has made everything possible to make vaccine easier to get for people concerned.
