Containment in 16 departments: A new certificate will be available this Friday

Most of the 16 departments, including Hauts-de-France and Île-de-France, will have to be contained again for four weeks, Prime Minister Jean Castex announced on Thursday evening. Restrictions of movement come into force in these areas. A new travel certificate will be available online for residents of these departments and for all French people in general.
