A new deconfinement in 4 key steps
Sports halls, swimming pools, thalassos
Many French people rushed to sports halls, gymnasiums and swimming pools when they reopened on Wednesday, despite a capacity reduced to 50%. Outdoor activities are possible with a limit of 25 people, including contact sports. Outdoor amateur sports competitions can be held within the limit of 500 participants. As for the stadiums, they can accommodate all practitioners (including contact sports).
As for spas, hammams, saunas and thalassotherapies, after long months of closure, they can finally welcome the public, while respecting a gauge of 35%.
Bars, cafes and restaurants
This is also a constraint for cafes and restaurants, which can once again accommodate the public indoors with tables of up to six people and a 50% gauge. In theory, no question of leaning on the counter and customers must register in a reminder book. Only people with a seat can be accommodated.
For establishments with terraces, which were able to reopen on May 19, the gauge goes up to 100% for consumption outside.
Shops and markets
Prime Minister Jean Castex marked this stage by going this Wednesday morning to the Rungis market, “symbol of recovery” which is announced “extremely strong”. In shops and covered markets, reception conditions are changing: the tonnage is reduced to 4 m² per customer (compared to 8 m² until then). Wearing a mask remains compulsory, as is the provision of hydroalcoholic gel.
For museums, the gauge also increases to 4 m² per visitor (against 8 m² until then). The same goes for bookcases, which maintain every other seat in a seated configuration.
Cinemas, theaters, circuses, zoos, festivals
Established at 35% on May 19, the gauge in cinemas and seated shows goes to 65%, with a ceiling of 5,000 people per room (instead of 800). The same goes for the marquees. Be careful, however, beyond 1,000 people, you will have to present your health pass with a vaccination certificate or a negative test for coronavirus.
Outdoor zoos can also raise their tonnage to 65%, down from the current 50%.
The same rules apply for open-air seated festivals: two-thirds gauge and a maximum of 5,000 spectators. From Thursday and Friday, the Olympia in Paris will reignite its neon lights for the Inrocks festival. Standing concerts cannot resume before June 30.
Trade shows, fairs, casinos
Trade fairs, fairs and casinos can once again open and welcome their visitors with a tonnage of 50% and up to 5,000 people. The health pass is required for more than 1000 people.

Fairgrounds, amusement parks
The fairgrounds are also reopening their doors, respecting a perimeter of 4 m² per customer, to the great relief of the fairgrounds who demonstrated for a rapid reopening.
Improved also for the amusement parks, which reopen with strict gauges per space (the same park can have different zones each having to respect a gauge) and not more than 50% maximum attendance indoors. Some have even taken even more drastic measures than the national instructions, Disneyland Paris – which will reopen only on June 17 – asks for example to wear a mask from six years old (against 11 in the rules issued by the government).

Places of worship, ceremonies
The sanitary provisions are also lightened with regard to places of worship and ceremonies (Pacs like weddings), churches and town halls being able to be filled at the rate of one seat occupied in two. As for funeral ceremonies, the government now allows up to 75 people.
The nightclubs, they will see their situation re-examined on June 21, the day of the Music Festival which will have to do without improvisations at the corner of the street and mini-concerts in front of the bars. While gatherings of more than 10 people will be prohibited.
