The curfew is introduced at 8:00 p.m. from Wednesday December 08, 2021 on the territory of Martinique. Any travel must be justified by an overriding reason of a family, health or professional nature.

The coronavirus epidemic continues to progress in Martinique. 618 cases tested positive for Covid-19, from November 29 to December 5, against 529 cases last week.

The health situation is deteriorating with epidemiological indicators and a health system – hospital and home – under strain.

To face the 5th wave, the prefect of Martinique after a local consultation conducted during the last few days, reinstates the curfew at 8:00 p.m. from Wednesday December 08, 2021.

Any travel must be justified by an overriding reason of a family, health or professional nature. The exemption for establishments open to the public (ERP) until 22:00 is not renewed.

In the event of an inspection, the exceptional travel certificate must be presented accompanied by supporting documents. This system is in place for 2 weeks and will be subject to a close review.
