Quarantine arrangements will be mandatory
According to French government spokesman Gabriel Attel, quarantine will be mandatory for people coming from Britain. The process will take seven days. “People from outside must also submit at least a 48-hour-old Covid-19 test,” Clement Buen, France’s European affairs minister, said on Twitter. These arrangements are expected to be implemented from Monday.
Significantly, coronavirus infections are on the rise again in Britain, but the rate of infection is still low in the world’s fastest-vaccinating country. The number of Kovid-19 patients admitted to hospitals has reached its lowest level since September last year.

Shock to the tourism industry
Tourism experts say this could be a serious problem for those involved in the tourism industry. According to official figures, about 13 million British people visit France every year before 2020, more than any other nationality. In such a case the number of tourists may be affected by these rules.
However, British tourists will be allowed to visit France from 9 June without any restrictions. For this, they must bring a certificate of vaccination or a COVID negative report against COVID-19.
