DecryptionTravel on the territory, traffic jams, air pollution or noise are all indicators of the relaxation of this new confinement.
The government announced, Thursday, November 12, the continuation of confinement, decreed from October 30 to limit the health effects of the second wave of Covid-19. Already tested for nearly two months in the spring, the device has been lightened to allow children to go to school and workers to continue their activity.
The objective is to “Limit as much as possible all non-essential trips”, all in “Preserving the education of our children and, as much as possible, its impact on employment and the economy“, recalled the Prime Minister, Jean Castex.
