Covid-19: Macron will chair a meeting this Thursday to reopen closed places

The main thing is that Emmanuel Macron will hold a meeting at the Elysee Palace on Thursday April 15 to discuss the protocols for the reopening of places that have been closed due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Another step towards a gradual return to normal life when the President of the Republic announced the reopening of the bar and restaurant terraces from mid-May.

Another step towards returning to normal life. Emmanuel Macron will chair a meeting at the Elysee Palace on Thursday at 6 p.m. to review the protocols for the reopening of places that have been closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, the presidency announced on Tuesday. “After the ministers’ meetings with stakeholders from the various sectors affected by the closure of facilities, it will be a matter of examining the health protocols foreseen for the gradual reopening of these places,” she said. Many ministers and government officials will attend this meeting.

Reopenings that are complex to set up

In his speech on March 31, Emmanuel Macron announced the reopening of terraces with bars and restaurants and certain cultural sites from mid-May “with strict rules” from mid-May. The start of the school year is scheduled for April 26th in schools and for another week in middle and high schools.

Coupled with an improvement in health, especially thanks to vaccination, the reopening promises a complex implementation while maintaining barrier gestures and protocols adapted to each type of activity.
A Senate information mission on Tuesday recommended a gradual restart of the cultural sites, depending on the risk, with the approval of the prefect in cooperation with the elected representatives on site, even if the dates are not the same for everyone.
