In France, due to high incidence rates, an extended curfew was imposed throughout the country on 16 January. Now it starts at 18:00, and not at 20:00, as it was before, and ends at 6:00, writes press.lv.
how радио Baltkom said a resident of Paris, a native of Latvia, Ksenia, the increase in the incidence of COVID-19 may be associated with the period of winter holidays, when local residents more often met with relatives and friends.
“In France, a curfew was imposed because the number of cases increased, this is due to the holidays – people met more often with family and friends. The curfew was introduced from 18:00, which is quite difficult for the majority of the population, which means that after 6 pm you cannot go outside, ”Ksenia said.
She also noted that in connection with the new rules, certain difficulties arose with the organization of the work process.
“For example, I divide my working day into two parts: I work until 5, then go for a short walk, buy food, queues form, people rush to have everything by 6 pm. Then I return home and continue to work, otherwise it does not work. Although, in principle, the employer can issue a paper that allows you to return home after 6. But it seems to me that people do not often use this, ”she said.
The early curfew, Xenia said, struck a new blow to the catering industry in France.
“Of course, it also hit cafes and catering places, because they open in the evening, prepare dinner – and close around 11. You can’t come to a cafe, but they still cook to-go, now there is a lot of it, ”said a resident of Paris.
However, she noted that the beauty industry in France is available under certain restrictions.
“At the moment it is possible, you can go to the hairdresser. Of course, you have to come in a mask and make an appointment in advance. But now the problem is that no one has time, everyone is trying to do everything before 6 pm, so there are difficulties with all services in terms of time, ”said Ksenia.
As previously reported in the French Ministry of Internal Affairs, almost 6 thousand fines were issued in France on the first day of the extended curfew imposed in the country in connection with the pandemic.
