Movements to be allowed to buy groceries, for strictly necessary work, and for medical needs.

People who violate the measures will be sanctioned.

The measures are put in place (for now) for 15 days.

I believe there was a fourth condition allowing for physical activity. I should interpret this as taking out the dog or brief exercise. However, contact with others is prohibited.

You are right Tocard. Physical activity — including dog walking, which Castaner seems to think should only happen once a day! — but on one’s own, not in a group, and near one’s domicile.

And a 5th allowable reason — to care for children or help vulnerable persons.

These further details came from the Interior Minister, who noted that 100,000 police and gendarmes will be deployed across France at fixed and mobile checkpoints on primary and secondary axes.

Along the Italian model, those who want :need to go out for one of the allowable reasons need to print off a form that the government will put on line, an attestation as to what one is doing and swearing on your honor that it is what you are doing and necessary.

If police stop you and find you are in infraction, they will fine you — starting at 38-€ and going up to 135€.

These restrictions go into place at noon tomorrow and will be in place for “at least” 15 days, they said.

P.s. if you don’t have a printer, you can write up your own attestation on paper.
