Containment measures will be implemented for the next two weekends in the municipalities of the Alpes-Maritimes coast to fight against the spread of Covid-19, the prefect of this department in south-eastern France announced on Monday. .

One hour outings will be authorized with dispensation (doctors, pets, sports, walks) within a radius of 5km from the home from Friday 6 pm to Monday 6 am in an area extending from Théoule-sur-Mer to Menton, which concentrates near 90% of the population of the department.

Such a territorialized confinement measure is a first since the start of the health crisis in the metropolitan area.

Moreover, for two weeks from Tuesday, the shops of more than 5000m2, except the pharmaciesand thefood shops, will also be closed in the department, said the representative of the State during a press conference.

For businesses over 400m2, the gauge will drop from 10 to 15 m2 per visitor. The prefect who called for barrier gestures to be “applied very strictly”, asked in particular “to business operators” concerned “to acquire a Covid mediator” responsible for enforcing the rules.

Controls at the italian border will also be reinforced, such as airport controls, continued the prefect, referring to the possibility of having a PCR test on all passengers on a flight.

The prefect also announced an “acceleration” of the vaccination campaign in the department, where approximately 4,500 doses of Pfizer vaccine must be received in the coming days, i.e. 1,000 more than what the Minister of Health Olivier Véran had already promised during his visit to Nice on Saturday.
