France:- As part of the 2nd confinement rules starting on Tuesday 3rd November a ban on the sale of all 'non-essential' items will come into force in supermarkets, the French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced this in a televised interview Sunday on TF1.
Non-essential items already banned from sale in small local shops will now also be banned in supermarkets from Tuesday, the PM said.
In his interview with TFI, Mr Castex said the decision was “heartbreaking” and that he promised to support these businesses so "they are not forced to close down".
