“We are not in deconfinement”
“We are not in deconfinement, but rather in a containment planning process “, hammered Etienne Guyot. “There are three stages: November 28, December 15 and January 20. Depending on the health results, we will move from one stage to another ”.
I attraction to the accountability of individuals. Everyone has an curiosity in issues going effectively in order to take the subsequent step.
Update on the circulation of the virus in Toulouse and Haute-Garonne
During the press convention, Jean-Jacques Morfoisse, Deputy Director General of the Regional Health Agency supplied an replace on the numerous indicators of the circulation of covid-19.
“The epidemic peak is behind us, we can be happy about it. However, we must remain vigilant. There is a decrease in the indicators, but they remain well above the alert thresholds despite everything ”.
In Haute-Garonne, the incidence fee (ie the variety of constructive assessments per 100,000 inhabitants) is 78. For Toulouse Métropole, it’s 80 per 100,000 inhabitants. “It has been divided by four in a few weeks, but it is still above the alert threshold which is at 50”.
77 sufferers are at the moment cared for in the division’s emergency companies. “The hospital peak is behind us, but the decrease is relatively small, we remain vigilant,” provides Jean-Jacques Morfoisse.
Special consideration to giant surfaces
A “step by step” machine which can subsequently start tomorrow, Saturday 28 November 2020. With a significant change: the reopening of outlets in Toulouse and Haute-Garonne, with the exception of bars and eating places which shouldn’t be in a position to reopen till 2021, if the well being state of affairs permits.
In outlets that reopen on Saturday, the gauge will now beone buyer for 8 m², in contrast to 4 m² beforehand.
We pays explicit consideration to supermarkets over 400m², that are required to have an announcement at the entrance to the retailer. It should be absolutely revered and it is going to be carefully monitored. Where doable, these shops also needs to arrange visitors instructions.
“Give preference to local shops”
All the outlets in the division can have the risk of welcoming prospects on Sundays, if they want, till the finish of the 12 months.
“All I ask is to have common sense,” explains Étienne Guyot. ” And of favor local shops : it avoids too much travel and it will make life easier for small businesses and they really need it ”.
To note that driving schools can reopen, only for practical lessons.
New travel certificate model
Another novelty that comes into force in this first stage of deconfinement: the area of ”freedom” around the home is widening to 20 km that can be explored for a period of three hours. A space and a time in which, for example, we can walk or do an individual outdoor sport (such as golf or horse riding for example).

And if the situation continues to improve, there will be no more travel restrictions ”.
More than 30 people in places of worship: “a robust demand”
From tomorrow, Masses will be able to resume, but with a gauge limited to 30 faithful. A limitation which does not satisfy the clergy and many faithful.

Cultural actions: we’ve got to wait somewhat longer
For now, there isn’t a query of constructing a small cinema. the first stage of deconfinement doesn’t in reality present for the resumption of cultural actions: it is going to be essential to wait till December 15 to hope to return to cinema or to theater (respecting the curfew) or resuming an extracurricular cultural exercise.
No query for the second both of return to the stadium to see a match. If yesterday the professional sports activities golf equipment of Haute-Garonne have pleaded their case with the Minister of Sports for a reopening on December 15, this isn’t what has been determined for the second: the matches in public ought to subsequently not resume till 2021.
Ski resort sure, ski lifts no!
The ski lifts Pyrenees ski resorts will likely be closed for the Christmas season. “Discussions are continuing with the idea of reopening in January,” says Étienne Guyot.
It stays that if the stations of French Pyrenees won’t be able to accommodate skiers, these ofSpain and Andorra might effectively. And on December 15, journey overseas will likely be approved once more …
