Travel, sports, bars and restaurants, schools: with the start of phase 2 of the deconfinement on Tuesday, many prohibitions fall, but this is not a return to normal. The restrictions are in particular always more important in the orange zones (Ile-de-France, Guyana and Mayotte) than on the rest of the territory. We take stock.
From Tuesday the ban on traveling more than 100 km from home is lifted across the country. It is thus allowed to take the plane or the train, provided you wear a mask (from 11 years). Air travel between mainland France, and overseas and Corsica, on the other hand, is limited to imperative family and professional reasons, until further notice.
Wearing a mask is also compulsory for taxis and VTC passengers, as well as in urban public transport, where rush hour travel can be restricted to home-work, school and medical trips.

Leisure and culture
Parks and gardens, as well as forests, are open throughout France, as are beaches, lakes and nautical centers. The prefect can impose the wearing of a mask. Museums, monuments and zoos can reopen, with compulsory mask. However, different rules apply for certain activities between the green zones and the orange zones.
The theaters can thus reopen in the green zones on June 2, with wearing of the compulsory mask, but not in the orange zones where the reopening is fixed at June 22, beginning of phase 3. Same calendar different for the halls and halls versatile.
Casinos can reopen on Tuesday in the green zone, only for slot machines and with mask. Leisure parks can also reopen in the green zone, with a mandatory mask, but only on June 22 in orange zones. Across the country, summer camps will only be able to reopen in phase 2 on June 22, just like cinemas. Meetings of more than 10 people in public space are prohibited at least until June 21, and large events of more than 5,000 people until August 31.
