The French government has published the three permission forms members of the public need to either go shopping, go to work or go to school during lockdown.
In all there are three forms, one that people will need when leaving their house to go shopping or for exercise, called the attestation de déplacement dérogatoire (exemption certificate), another form that workers will need to make the journey to and from their place of work, called the justificatif de déplacement professionel and finally a form that covers school pupils titled the justificatif de déplacement scolaire.
The form needed to leave the home, seen below, includes several options members of the public must tick to explain their reason for being outside.
These cover essential trips such as grocery shopping, exercising, visiting a doctor or for imperative family reasons.
Those who are stopped by police and don’t have a form or are judged by the police to be flouting the rules risk a fine of €135 that could rise to €375. Those who are caught flouting the rules three times in 30 days fave a fine of €3,750
