Paris Bans Takeaways and Alcohol at Night as COVID-19 Crisis Worsens.
The police prefecture in Paris has announced it will ban delivery and takeaway services for prepared food and alcohol between 10 pm and 6 am from Friday in a bid to curb the worsening COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement on Thursday, police officials said the sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks in public spaces during those hours would also be banned.
Earlier in the day, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo had said the new restrictions were necessary to prevent people from gathering outside food outlets in the French capital. The new curbs will come on top of the existing national lockdown that has been imposed throughout France.
President Emmanuel Macron imposed a new lockdown last month, forcing non-essential shops – such as those not selling basic foods or medicines – to close, and making people use signed documents to justify being out on the streets. Nevertheless, French authorities believed more measures were needed in Paris as they felt there were still too many people out in the capital late at night, in spite of the lockdown.
