Schools will remain open and outdoor activities will be allowed to go ahead within a 10km radius of a person’s home.

Non-essential shops, not including book shops, will be required to close.

Inter-regional travel will be prohibited, and the nationwide nightly curfew will be moved back an hour to 7pm local time (6pm GMT).

It comes as France on Thursday reported a further 34,998 cases of COVID-19 – down slightly from the more than 38,000 new infections the day before.

Another 268 people have also died, bringing the country’s total fatality toll to 91,679.
