UCLy is still open, with restrictions.
Social distancing is implemented everywhere on the campuses and mask wearing remains mandatory. Hand sanitizer gel is at your disposal all throughout the premises; be sure to use it as much as you can!
Following the announcements made on the 28th of October, President Macron issued a new declaration on the 22nd of November to the effect that France would be entering into a three-stage easing of restrictions over the next two months.
Until the 15th of December, lockdown will still be enforced but with less restrictions (extension of the daily authorized outing, limited reopening of the places of worship). Then, passed that date and if the sanitary situation continues to improve , the population should be allowed to move around the country and spend holidays with their families and friends.
The last step of this two months plan is the 20th of January when the cinemas, theaters, museums, bars, restaurants and sport centers should finally reopen.
