As part of the reduction of containment, the President of the Republic announced on 24 November 2020 the end of containment on 15 December 2020 if the control of the epidemic allowed it. As the maximum threshold of 5,000 new cases of contamination per day had not been reached, containment was lifted on 15 December 2020 under these conditions:
A national curfew was introduced, from 8pm (and not 9pm as initially envisaged) to 6am. An exception is planned for the evening of 24 December 2020, when traffic will be free; however, contrary to what was initially planned, there is no exception for the evening of 31 December 2020.
During this curfew, only certain journeys are possible, provided you have a certificate:
travelling to or from work, to or from a vocational training course, or to or from a business trip that cannot be postponed;
compelling family reasons, for assistance to vulnerable and precarious people, particularly people with disabilities, or for childcare;
medical reasons: going to hospital, examinations and care that cannot be provided at a distance and the purchase of medicines;
participating in missions of general interest at the request of the administrative authority (marauding by anti-poverty associations or distributing food aid at home);
people with disabilities and their carers;
walking a pet around their home within a radius of 1 km.
Sporting activities or walking in the open air is prohibited from 8 pm to 6 am;
during the day, travel is authorised and the certificate is no longer required;
travel between regions is authorised;
the gauge in places of worship is not increased;
