Bars and restaurants may open in France starting next Tuesday

The bars, cafes and restaurants of France will be able to open their doors to the public from next Tuesday, June 2, although in the Parisian region only the terraces will be able to do so at the moment, announced French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe on Thursday.

In establishments it will be mandatory to wear face masks for employees and customers when they are on the move and there should be at least a meter of distance between tables, said Philippe, adding that the situation in the Paris region – which is still in the “orange” phase – will be re-examined on June 22.

Other measures announced by Philippe for the new phase of the de-escalation that begins on June 2 in France include the opening from that date of secondary schools and museums and monuments, except in Paris.
