Local specificity.

Tuesday evening, a few hours after his counterpart in the North, the prefect of Pas-de-Calais published a new list of measures aimed at stemming the coronavirus epidemic.

Directives in all points similar, with one detail however.

Regarding the coronavirus epidemic, Pas-de-Calais is closely following the North.

The two departments have also been classified in red zones a few days apart.

If at the departmental level the incidence rate did not yet exceed 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants on September 11, the disease progression indicator exploded on the other hand in certain basins.

In the districts of Boulogne-sur-Mer and Montreuil-sur-Mer, the incidence rate reaches 450 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

Not surprising since this is where one of the main clusters, Le Touquet, is located.

No alcohol on public roads between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m.

In the same way as it was done in the North, the prefect of Pas-de-Calais has therefore canceled the European Heritage Days (EJP), scheduled for this weekend, in certain sectors.

There, it is about the two districts mentioned above, Boulogne-sur-Mer and Montreuil-sur-Mer.

Events related to the Neighbors Day, Friday, and to take place on the public highway are canceled throughout the department.

In Pas-de-Calais, there will be no obligation to cancel either, but a strong recommendation to postpone “major events bringing together the public”.

Same recommendation to postpone private events as much as possible.

Clearance sales, flea markets and other garage sales must be limited to 200 exhibitors.

In the copy and paste of the decree of his counterpart in the North, the prefect of Pas-de-Calais however added a few lines.

The State representative banned “the consumption of alcoholic drinks […] in the public domain from 5 pm to 8 am” throughout the department.

A provision that does not include the terraces of bars, cafes and restaurants.
