Regarding the arrival time at home, French President Emmanuel Macron wrote on Twitter, “The arrival time will be set from 9 PM to 6 AM in the emergency medical facilities.”

As of Friday midnight, Paris and eight other areas have affected at least a third of the country’s population who will face nighttime and closure. Areas that could be closed are Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Saint Etienne, Montpellier, Rouen, Lille, and Grenoble.

In an emergency, there will be a ban on organizing secret parties such as weddings, however, gatherings of 6 people will be allowed and if someone is caught violating the rules they will be fined $ 160.

French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said about 12,000 police officers would be used to enforce the law.

The law was announced due to an increase in the number of coronavirus cases that increased after June this year.
