CORONAVIRUS: france schools will reopen on May 11 with conditions


France has announced plans to begin easing its coronavirus lockdown within two weeks – with schools and non-essential businesses set to reopen starting on May 11.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said permits will no longer be required to leave the house from that date and small museums will also be allowed to start readmitting guests.

However, people will still be instructed to work from home where possible while restaurants and bars will also remain shuttered, he told parliament.

Mr Philippe also stressed that the lockdown will remain in place if France’s daily infection total creeps back over 3,000 cases. Since April 15, the average number of daily cases was 2,162 per day.
