This is highly anticipated information that was to be released on Friday, April 30, in a major interview with President Emmanuel Macron in the regional press. But the EBRA group, of which Le Progrès or the Latest news from Alsace have followed by other titles, brought forward the time of publication of the major announcements.
A source revealed that the President is betting on this date May 3 as the end of traffic restrictions. Though the 7 p.m. curfew and teleworking will remain in place. The travel certificate to exceed the radius of 10 kilometres will no longer be necessary.
