After some of the strongest COVID-19 measures in Europe were put in place, the French nation finally has something to cheer for.
Next week will see the easing of these restrictions along with the reopening of the nightlife sector. The French nightlife sector has been one of the hardest-hit across Europe.
From Wednesday, January the 2nd, compulsory mask-wearing will be removed when outside. This easing will be followed by the reopening of nightlife venues from February the 16th.
It has been a long time coming for French partygoers. The country’s venues have suffered numerous stop/start calls, and in the most recent closures, have not been open since December of last year.
The French Prime Minister, Jean Castex, has also announced capacity limits are to be removed, however, COVID passports will remain in place.
