Data provided immediately after weekends and bank holidays is lower than average. This is due to the testing facilities mainly being closed during these times.

Note: The graph updates automatically and is sometimes updated a day behind the figures given above, which are updated manually each day. The date is given in the graph and is also indicated above our daily updated figures. If the figure of the daily number of Covid-19 cases given above does not match with the most recent figure marked on the graph below, this is probably due to the fact that the graph's data is yet to update.

What are the current curfew and lockdown rules in France?

A 23:00 to 06:00 curfew is in place. The curfew is due to end completely on June 20.

All shops can now open. Restaurants (both inside and outside) and drinking areas are open with a limit on the number of people allowed at one time. Cinemas, museums, galleries, gyms and sports halls are also open with limits on numbers and with certain restrictions in place. Certain large events need a so-called 'health pass' to enter (this is basically proof of vaccination, a PCR test or that you have recently had Covid).

Masks are required in all indoor public spaces but only in some outdoor situations, such as at large gatherings, outdoor markets or in stadiums.

Can I travel to and from France right now?

A new set of travel rules came into effect in France on June 9, under which countries are classed as green, amber or red. It will be easier for fully vaccinated people to enter France. The UK and US are initially classed as amber, meaning that fully vaccinated people are allowed to enter with proof of a negative Covid-19 test. France's rules are only part of the picture and you also need to note the rules in the country you are travelling from.
