Covid-19. Towards the end of the state of health emergency? The executive is working on it

When will the state of health emergency, put in place in March 2020 in France in the midst of the first wave of Covid-19 and be extended several times since then?

The executive is working on it: a bill for the exit from this exceptional regime must be presented to the Council of Ministers on April 28 and around May 10 before the deputies.

The state of health emergency allows, for example, to take measures such as curfews.

The government is thus considering a text that provides for the end of confinement and curfew, while keeping health measures such as wearing a mask, compulsory tests to cross borders, or a maximum gauge in establishments open to the public.

Parliamentarians voted without conviction in February to extend the state of emergency until June 1.

For LREM deputy Sacha Houlié, co-author of a report to strengthen safeguards in the face of the state of emergency, this exit bill is “consistent” with the government’s vaccination objectives and represents a ” good sign of relaxation “.
