As a result, Roazhon Park will sound a little less hollow on Tuesday night for Stade Rennais to compete in the Champions League against Krasnodar. The bars, however, did not get any immediate boost and must always close at 10 p.m. in the Rennes metropolitan area, while restaurants will have to apply a stricter health protocol, with no more than six customers per table.
The compulsory mask everywhere in Saint-Malo and Dinard
As the All Saints holidays begin, the prefect has also decided to make the wearing of a mask compulsory in several tourist towns in the department, in particular in Cancale, Saint-Briac-sur-Mer or Saint-Lunaire. The measure now also applies throughout the territory of the cities of Saint-Malo and Dinard for a period of fifteen days.
In Morbihan, Prefect Patrice Faure has decided to ban access to beaches and coastal paths from 9pm to 6am.
