14-day quarantine will not apply to Schengen zone

By Cassandra Tanti - May 3, 2020

France revealed late Sunday night that it would not quarantine travellers arriving from the EU, the Schengen area or Britain due to the coronavirus pandemic, contradicting an earlier announcement that the quarantine would apply to all travellers.

The government has decided to extend a ‘state of health emergency’ until 24th July to combat the spread of Covid-19, however it will begin to ease lockdown measures from 11th May.

Announcing the extension on Saturday, the government had said that anyone entering France would have to remain in isolation for two weeks, French nationals included.

However, the quarantine rules will not apply to “anyone arriving from the European Union, the Schengen zone or Britain, regardless of their nationality”, the presidency said on Sunday.

For French and EU citizens arriving in France from other regions outside the EU, the Schengen area and Britain, “the rules will be announced in the coming days”, the presidency added.
