The winter truce on rental evictions, which should have ended on March 31, will be extended again until "July" after having already been extended due to the coronavirus crisis, the Minister of Housing announced on Thursday.

"We will postpone the winter break until July," said Julien Denormandie on Franceinfo, adding that the precise date would be announced the day after consulting parliamentarians. The truce had so far been extended until May 31 to help households, whose income has been cut due to confinement.
