What are the current curfew and lockdown rules in France?
The night curfew ended in France on June 20.
All shops can 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 '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 not in outdoor places except in certain circumstances, such as at large gatherings, outdoor markets or in stadiums.
Can I travel to and from France right now?
France has a system of classing countries as green, amber or red for travel. The colour determines the rules set by France for people travelling from those countries and for people travelling from France to them. The UK is classed as amber, meaning that fully vaccinated people are allowed to enter with proof of a negative Covid-19 test but non vaccinated people can only enter if they have an 'essential reason' to do so. France's rules are only part of the picture and you also need to note the rules in the corresponding country. The US was classed as green on France's travel list on June 18.
