Lockdown Exit: What Changes From June 9, 2021 In France

France will enter the third step of its lockdown exit on June 9, 2021. Curfew hours and restrictions are going to change for France from this day onward, what does it imply for us?

Opening Cafés

France's four-step lockdown exit scheme is a beacon of hope for the country, as they release more and more restrictions with each new step. Paris is back in business, and with that comes the reopening of restaurants and terraces.

This means that Parisians can finally enjoy their favorite foods again! The opening restaurants are a great way to celebrate the city's return to normalcy as the number of covid cases decreases every day.

Curfew is postponed to 11 p.m.

The curfew in Paris has been rescinded so restaurants and terraces can stay open later into the evening, from 8 pm until 11 pm.

Reopening of indoors space at 50% capacity

Outdoor terraces have been able to reopen their doors since May 19th. But June 9th takes it a step further. Wednesday comes around bars, cafés and restaurants can finally welcome patrons indoors again! Parisian restaurants will be able to reopen again on June 9, 2021 - which began the release of professionals who no longer have to suffer outdoor weather fluctuations.

Opening of outdoors space at full capacity

Until this Wednesday, restaurant professionals in Paris could only reopen their terraces and serve customers at a 50% capacity per space. New sanitary protocol dictates that now they can reopen their spaces to 100% capacity, but with properly seated customers following a new sanitation protocol.

6 people max per table

The terraces and restaurants will also be to host customers in the establishment, but only to a 50% fill level. Additionally, inside and outside tables will have a maximum of 6 people per table.

Paris is back in business, and with that comes the reopening of restaurants and terraces. With 6 people max per table, opening up outdoors space at full capacity again, reopening indoors spaces at 50% capacity (and curfew postponed to 11 p.m.), it looks like life in France may be getting closer to normalcy than ever before!
