Running in Paris banned from 10am to 7pm

As the death toll from the COVID-19 epidemic in France has gone over the 10,000 mark, the authorities in Paris have banned people from running in the city from 10am in the morning to 7pm in the evening. This is usually when streets are at their busiest.

The new rules come into effect on Wednesday the 8th of April.

The Paris daytime running ban followed a sunny weekend when large groups of people were running and walking in the city's parks, despite police controls that include fines for violating the lock down.

Several hundred thousand people have been fined to date for breaking the lock down restrictions.
