  • Californians try to get Covid-19 vaccine earlier, as state eases stay-at-home orders, curfew

    After being a hotspot of Covid-19 infections and hospitalizations in the US for weeks, the state of California has eased its stay-at-home orders after both rates slowed down. This is not yet a result of the vaccination plan, since for now it is only available for the elderly and first responders. But In Los Angeles, there is a way for some people outside those categories to get the vaccine earlier, as FRANCE 24’s Alissa Caverley and Pierre Leurent report from the Californian metropolis.

  • Hair salon in California defies stay-at-home orders

    Vacaville, Apr 30 (EFE/EPA).- The owner of Hairendipity Salon re-opened her business two days ago in defiance of the COVID-19 stay-at-home order in Vacaville. California Governor Gavin Newsom said hair salons fall under the state’s third phase of reopening California businesses, and is currently starting the first phase. Lia Rivera, who has opened her business mainly for regular clients, is willing to risk a $1,000 fine, instead of losing thousands of dollars by staying closed. Six Bay Area counties said that they will be extending shelter-in-place orders through the end of May amid the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Might as well stay home? Winter holidays in France during Covid-19

    The French are known for their long summer holidays, but there's a winter break that's also an institution. In normal times, during "les vacances d'hiver" or winter vacation, many people head to France's mountains for some skiing. However, this year is obviously a little different. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many are skipping their winter sports or not going away at all. It's another tough blow for France's struggling tourism sector. We take a closer look in this edition of French Connections.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
