The first evening of curfew in Rouen


A few minutes before 9 p.m., Saturday October 16.

The bosses and staff of bars and restaurants in the Rouen agglomeration address their customers: “We’re going to close, ladies and gentlemen!”
Get home before 9 p.m. This is the new rule for Rouen night owls but it is also heartbreaking for the owners of these establishments. Right off the bat, many consumers understand and accept the situation:

We have no choice. We do what we are told to do

A client of a bar

We understand but we will continue at home. There are only six of us. We are entitled to six so …

A bar customer

I think there will be some drifts, more gatherings at home.

9 o’clock strikes

The curfew to fight against the development of COVID-19 applies for the first time in the Norman capital.
In a few minutes, Rouen turns into a ghost town. With the exception of a few delivery men, the streets are almost deserted.
For this first night, the police and order patrols were reinforced in all the districts … The city is therefore placed under the surveillance of several dozen police officers.
That night: 43 verbalizations were drawn up throughout the city.
