Perfume of freedom in France with the opening of parks and gardens

Parks and gardens reopened on Saturday in areas from red to orange, such as Paris, following the lifting of this restriction announced Thursday by Edouard Philippe. What cheers many French people.

Parks and gardens have reopened in France on Saturday, May 30, while cafes and restaurants are preparing to welcome their first customers on Tuesday since mid-March: a scent of newfound freedom flows over Pentecost, despite limited travel and a dense economic landscape. .

The government gave the green light on Thursday that many restrictions were lifted due to the “good results” on the front of the coronavirus epidemic, according to Prime Minister Edouard Philippe. He insisted on the continuous decline since April 9 in the number of patients being treated for intensive care.

All departments are in the green zone with the exception of Île-de-France, Guyana and Mayotte, which has gone from red to orange. The ending will therefore be a little more cautious than in the rest of the territory.

The parks and gardens can be opened from Saturday by the city hall, but with caution in the areas where they had been closed, especially in Paris. Enough to satisfy many French people at the beginning of a weekend that promises to be summer over much of the country.

End of the rule of 100km from 2June

The beaches and lakes should be available gradually again from June 2, when other restrictions will cease, such as removing travel boundaries more than 100 km from home, reopening high schools and cafes restaurants.

But watch out, the 100km rule is “still in effect this weekend” and there will be “checks”, Interior Minister Christophe Castaner warned on RTL Friday. He also appealed to the “responsibility and good citizenship” of the French for this phase 2 of the conclusion.

In addition to the parks and gardens, Galeries Lafayette opens on Saturday morning in Paris, with a limited number of customers and precautions so that the barges meet as little as possible.

A total of Covid-19 killed 28,714 people in France, according to the report published on Friday, weighed in by 52 new deaths compared to the previous day.
