Who would have thought, one day, that we would be confining the house for several weeks?
However, since March 17, 2020, the French are prohibited from leaving, with exceptions. Indeed, because of the global pandemic of Covid-19, and as a precaution, the government is calling on its citizens to stay at home.
However, despite this coercive measure, certain situations force us to go out (go shopping, go to work if work is not allowed …).
To meet its needs and make travel possible, the State has set up a mandatory certificate to be completed before each trip.
According to the latest news, it is compulsory until May 11, the date on which containment is planned. It must be present during checks carried out by the police, at the risk of incurring a fine of 135 euros.
It comes in two forms, paper and digital. In this article, we explain how to access and download it.
