EbeneMagazine – FR – The incomprehensible curfew at 6 p.m. for the Ardèche town of Tournon, which is separated from the Drème by a bridge

. .

In order to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the government plans to increase the curfew to 6 p.m. in about 20 days © departments. In Tournon in Ardèche, one wonders: The neighboring department of Drôme, separated by a simple bridge, is not targeted.

For the Minister of Health Olivier Véran, the virus is still circulating too quickly in certain regions. It is planned to introduce a curfew in about twenty departments, where the incidence rate is 200 per 100,000 residents to advance two hours.

This announcement concerns Tournon in Ardèche, hard hit by the epidemic. The inhabitants of this commune with 11,000 inhabitants who border the Drôme are amazed. Only a bridge separates the two departments. And on the other side of the Rhine, there is no curfew at 6 p.m. …

For example, I live in Ardèche, but I work in Drôme. There is only one bridge that separates us. It’s a bit silly.

This situation hurts the head of Frédéric SAusset, the mayor (LR) of the city of Ardé Choise. The Edile mentions a large number of people who cross the bridge every day to work completely different hours or just to pick up the children from daycare.

So curfew at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m.? The objective is to slow down the epidemic which mainly affects people over 65 in Ardèche. Tournon hospital is severely affected by this second wave.
