Our lockdown here in France has changed again. We are no longer required, before going out of the house, to fill out a sworn statement specifying what time we left our house, our address, and the purpose of our outing (groceries, doctor's, pharmacy, etc.). Instead of being allowed out for only three hours a day, we no longer have a time restriction during daylight hours.
However, all of France is under curfew from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m. every day. We're not allowed out in public between those hours unless we fill out and sign a form (une attestation) specifying that our outing has to do with going to or coming home from work, dealing with a medical emergency, or providing aid and assistance family members or other people in need of help.
This must be a lot easier for the gendarmes to enforce, since nearly nobody is authorized to be on the streets after 8 p.m. Over the past few weeks and months, Walt and I have been very careful to fill our the form with the required information, but neither of us has actually been stopped or questioned by anybody. Face coverings are required indoors (except at home).
Speaking of being out on the streets, here are some photos that I took in Paris back in the days when we were allowed full freedom of unmasked movement.
The Palais Bourbon is where the French Assemblée nationale meets. Across the river is the place de la Concorde.
