A French minister says citizens in need of a summer holiday should not stray beyond the country’s borders.
“We absolutely do not invite the French to book their holidays abroad,” Elisabeth Borne, minister for ecological transition, told France Inter radio. “This year, the idea is rather to spend your holidays in France.”
She said the government would announce next week whether rules on domestic travel would be eased.
At the moment people cannot travel more than 100km (62 miles) from home.
Parks in Paris will remain closed, Borne added, because the city is still a “red zone” for coronavirus transmission.
