Reader question: I live just outside Nice. Where precisely does the Alpes-Maritimes’ new weekend lockdown apply?

For the next two weekends there will be lockdown measures all along the Alpes-Maritimes’ coastline.

This new measure was announced on Monday, February 22, in order to stem the spread of Covid-19. The Alpes-Maritimes department has the highest rate of Covid cases per population of any department in mainland France.

Why so many cases in Alpes-Maritimes?

The lockdown will apply to 63 communes in the department, covering around 90% of the total population.

Villages and towns further from the coastline have been spared.
