No quarantine for arrivals to France from EU and UK

Processing will switch from Paris to UK later this year - and take longer

France will not impose a quarantine period on people, of any nationality, coming into France from a country within the EU, Schengen zone or the United Kingdom, the Elysée announced this evening (May 3). 

Health Minister Olivier Véran stated yesterday that quarantine measures as outlined in a draft law to extend the state of health emergency in France to July 24 to be debated this week would apply "to people entering the national territory or arriving in an overseas territory" or Corsica.

It has now been announced that this will not apply to arrivals from EU states or the UK.

With one week to go until May 11, the date announced for the start of deconfinement, 135 additional deaths linked to coronavirus have been recorded in 24 hours in France, the lowest figure for several weeks, the health ministry said tonight.

It brings the total number of deaths in France (in hospitals and care homes but not counting deaths at home) to 24,895 since March 1.
