This is getting serious.
To deal with a rising number of COVID-19 cases, the French government will impose a curfew on nine major metropolitan areas beginning Friday night. The curfew, which includes Paris, Toulouse, and Marseille, extends from 9:00pm to 6:00am daily, and will run for at least six weeks.
Citizens out during those hours must show papers proving that they are going to or returning from work, or are traveling on pre-booked journeys. Food delivery services will also be allowed.
The curfew will affect more than 20 million people, just short of one-third of the nation’s 67 million people.
