Parisians Party on Banks of Seine as France Lifts Curfew

People packed the quays of the River Seine in Paris on June 21 for the annual Fete de la Musique, as France lifted 10 days early its 11 pm coronavirus curfew.

Prime Minister Jean Castex said on June 16 that the requirement to wear masks outdoors was being lifted, and that the curfew would end on Sunday, June 20, rather than on June 30 as originally planned.
