Cinemas and Casinos Reopening in Paris

PARIS — With many more pupils returning to school, cinemas and casinos reopening, and more group sports, France’s coronavirus lockdown measures are largely over.

Schoolyards were again filled with children's voices as classes resumed Monday for all pupils except those in high schools who have either finished studies for the academic year or still face restrictions.

Schools closed in March as the coronavirus outbreak raged. Classes gradually resumed for some primary and middle school children in May. But for many others, Monday marked a reunion with teachers and pupils they had only seen via video link during remote learning in recent months.

While more group sports resumed on Monday, combat sports remain banned. The government has promised to revue that policy by September.

Masks are also still obligatory on public transport.

If the outbreak continues to abate in France, the government says nightclubs should be allowed to reopen in September along with trade fairs and international cruises.
