As France is entering a new step in the lockdown exit process, night clubs have been given no reopening date yet. As Emmanuel Macron is expecting professionals from the trade on June 21, Health Minister Olivier Véran confirms nightclubs can reopen in July.

As the coronavirus epidemic is declining in France, returning to normal life seems to get closer by the day. Encouraged by this evolution of the epidemic and the improvement in the vaccination campaign, the government keeps on following the lockdown exit scheme and even lift some measures such as outdoor facemask-wearing and curfew.

Yet, even beyond the last key date of this scheme – namely June 30 – some sectors remain on a standstill. This is the case of night clubs, closed since the health crisis broke out, still waiting for a reopening date. 

Touring Drôme this June 8, Emmanuel Macron has said he was expecting professionals from the trade on June 21, on Make Music Day then. But, according to BFMTV, it seems it will rather be "a review clause planned around that very date".

Still according to BFMTV, the reopening of night clubs might be considered for Friday July 2, 2021 or at least "as soon as possible" and "before the summer starts". Talks are going on between the government and players specifically when it comes to the famous health protocol to instate for the reopening. This Thursday June 17, 2021 Health Minister Olivier Véran confirmed on BFMTV-RMC nightclubs can reopen in July "under specific conditions".
