News – FR – Covid: an LREM member asks the French to avoid the Alpes-Maritimes “in the days to come”


The coast of the department could be subject to containment on weekends, as requested by most local elected officials, in the face of the increase in the number of contaminations in the Alpes-Maritimes

Faced with the resurgence of the Covid-19 epidemic in the department, LREM deputy for the Alpes-Maritimes Alexandra Valetta-Ardisson asked the French on BFMTV on February 21 not to go “in the days to come ” on the territory

In Nice in particular, the incidence rate is particularly high, with more than 700 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while the national average is 190 In addition, around 10% of Covid-19 tests are positive, compared to 6% for the whole country

“We are really calling for the responsibility of all French people by telling them:” Do not come in the days to come, do not come to spend your holidays in the Alpes-Maritimes Come later, once the epidemic is gone “”, explained the elected official, saying she is in favor of establishing a weekend containment in the department.

This is one of the avenues for developing measures in the Alpes-Maritimes After consultation with local elected officials, the prefecture announced on February 21 that it had sent proposals for increased restrictions to the government – without specifying their precise terms.According to AFP, the hypothesis of localized confinement on weekends, which would be a first in metropolitan France, would be favored by the authorities An announcement could be made on February 22 in the morning, according to BFMTV

“The decision is almost taken We are moving towards containment at the weekend “, said LR deputy Eric Ciotti in Nice-Matin, hoping that” the high country, which is less affected by the epidemic, is preserved ” The confinement on Saturdays and Sundays of the coastal towns, from Menton to Théoule-sur-Mer, is also favored by the LR mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, who wishes to discourage the influx of tourists

On France Inter, LREM deputy Alexandra Valetta-Ardisson reported on the tracks proposed by elected officials during a meeting on the evening of February 20 with the prefect: “Wearing the generalized mask”, “strengthening of controls”, tightening of “the gauge for shopping centers”, “confinement targeted at weekends and only on the coast” and “the ban on entry into the department, unless there is a compelling reason” On the other hand, “we said that we did not want a general reconfinement”, she said.

“This notion of confining the coastal strip [] on weekends, it is also to avoid a massive influx of tourists, [] of people who come from neighboring departments, but also from France ”, justified the elected representative on BFMTV
