What changes on April 6, 2020?
On the government website, you can now download a derogatory certificate of travel in digital format, to be presented to justify his personal travels on the national territory. This new certification format complements certificates to be printed in various office formats.
In a personal setting, travel is always prohibited except for:
Travel between home and the place of professional activity, when they are essential to the exercise of activities that cannot be organized in the form of telework or business trips that cannot be deferred.
Travel to purchase supplies necessary for work and basic purchases at establishments whose activities remain permitted (list on gouvernement.fr).
Consultations and care that cannot be provided remotely and cannot be deferred; consultations and care of patients with long-term conditions.
Travel for compelling family reasons, for assistance to vulnerable people or for child care.
Short trips, within one hour of a day and within a maximum radius of one kilometre around the home, related either to the individual physical activity of individuals, to the exclusion of any collective sports practice and any proximity to other people, or to the walk with the only people grouped in the same home, or to the needs of pets.
Judicial or administrative summons.
Participation in missions of general interest at the request of the administrative authority.
Or find the certificate to print to go to work? Here on ZDNet
For professionals who cannot telework, the move to the workplace or during the exercise of their work is required to present a specific certificate. You must have a certificate downloadable here (this is the site of the Ministry of the Interior), or there (this is the site of ZDNet.fr). It should be noted that this certificate is different from the derogatory travel certificate presented as the only document required on 17 March 2020 by the government. Violations of these rules will be punished with a fine ranging from 38 to 135 euros.
Or find the derogatory certificate of travel in digital form?
From 06 April, a new derogatory certificate of travel in digital format is downloadable in PDF format on the website of the Ministry of the Interior. It must be stored on a smartphone in order to be presented to law enforcement using a QR code. This certificate of digital derogatory displacement is a complement to the paper device already in place to justify exits despite containment measures. The service is available online for free on the Home Office website.
As with the paper certificate, all you have to do is fill in your identity and contact information (name, address, date of birth), select a reason for exit, specify the date and time, and then click “Generate my certificate.” “There will be no file. No one will be able to collect user data,” Christophe Castaner, the interior minister, told Le Parisien. “You will need to specify your exit time, but the time you edited the document will be available to the police. This will prevent people from filling out the certificate only at the sight of a police check. And thanks to the QR code, the police and gendarmes will not need to take the phone in hand, they will just have to scan the screen. »
It seems that technically all the data generated locally on the smartphone is stored on the phone. To put it bluntly, no personal information administered on the form is sent to a remote server. This is enough to ensure the security of users’ data. The only transmission of information outside the phone is via reading the QR code during a police check.
Or find the travel derogatory certificate to print?
The simple derogatory certificate to print is downloadable here (site of the Ministry of the Interior), or there (ZDNet.fr site). Violations of these rules will be punished with a fine ranging from 38 to 135 euros. Derogatory travel certificates are downloadable in .pdf format, or can be written on free paper. For greater accessibility, derogatory travel certificates and professional travel certificates are now available in .txt, .docx and English language.
It should be noted that if a digital certificate exists now, a paper copy of the derogatory travel certificates to be printed must be presented to law enforcement on the public road in the absence of this digital version. The digitization of the certificates to be printed and their presentation on smartphone or tablet is not allowed.
Can I go to work?
No, I’m staying home and telecommuting. If telework is not possible I can go to work by transport or by my personal means, with a certificate and an identity card.
It should be noted that the employer is obliged to adapt everyone’s work to ensure the safety of employees if telework is not possible.
For employers, the government recommends that the use of telework be generalized and that any physical meetings of persons that are not essential to the continuation of the activity be suspended. The employer must also inform employees of best practices and recommendations to protect the public. Note this very complete page allows to get many answers to the questions posed by employers and employees.
Can I take transportation to work?
Transportation will only be open to people who are required to go to their workplace. They may be asked for a certificate. The borders of the Schengen area will be closed from 17 March at noon for a period of 30 days.
What are the barriers to applying in a professional setting?
In the face of infections, there are simple steps to preserve your health and that of your professional entourage if you are not in the possibility of teleworking:
Washing your hands very regularly
Cough or sneeze in your elbow or in a handkerchief
Greeting without shaking hands, avoid kissing
Use single-use handkerchiefs and discard them
Avoid gatherings, limit travel and contact
Do I have to wear a mask at work?
Wearing a surgical mask is not recommended without the presence of symptoms. The mask is not the right answer for the general public because it cannot be worn permanently and above all has no indication without close and prolonged contact with a patient.
What if I think I’m sick in the workplace?
In case of symptoms (cough, fever) that resemble Covid-19, the Ministry of Health recommends that professionals avoid contact, go home and call a doctor before going to his office, or even call the local permanent care number. Note that teleconsultation is possible. If symptoms worsen with breathing difficulties and signs of suffocation, the UAS should be called (15).
In case of a positive test during the medical appointment, the authorities call to stay strictly at home, to wear a mask to go to the medical appointment. If you have difficulty breathing, call 15.
You must then be prescribed an initial work stoppage lasting 7 to 14 days. Then via the teleconsultation, a medical opinion will be given. Depending on the state of health, a work stoppage will be renewed for an additional 7 days. Isolation should be lifted 48 hours after the full resolution of the symptoms.
Who are the “at risk” people (and therefore should not go to work)?
The High Council of Public Health (HCSP) considers that people at risk of developing a severe form of SARS-CoV-2 infection are:
People aged 70 and over. And patients between the age of 50 and 70 need to be monitored more closely.
Patients with dialysis chronic kidney failure, NYHA III or IV stage heart failure
Patients with stage B cirrhosis at least
Patients with cardiovascular history (ATCD): high blood pressure, stroke or coronary artery disease ATCD, cardiac surgery;
Insulin-dependent diabetics or those with complications secondary to their pathology (micro or macro angiopathy);
Chronic respiratory insensucied with oxygen therapy or asthma or cystic fibrosis or any chronic respiratory pathology that may decompensate with a viral infection;
People with drug immunodepression: anti-cancer chemotherapy, immunosuppressant, biotherapy and/or immunosuppressive dose corticosteroid therapy, uncontrolled HIV infection with CD4 -200/mn3 following a solid organ or hematopoietic stem cell transplant, malignant hemorrhage during treatment, metastasized cancer. Pregnant women from 3rd trimester People with morbid obesity (body mass index – 40kg/m2: by analogy with influenza A (H1N1)
As with many infectious diseases, people with chronic diseases (hypertension, diabetes), the elderly (over 70 years of age), immunocompromised or fragile are at higher risk. In more severe cases, the disease can lead to death.
The country’s universities have been closed since Monday, at least until the spring break, affecting 2.6 million students. Three to four hours of instruction per day – online exercises, “virtual class” in videoconferencing – must be offered by the institutions. Exams and recruitment competitions are postponed.
For parents of students
As part of school closures, parents of a child under the age of 16 may benefit from a sick leave if it is not possible to benefit from a working conditions arrangement to stay at home to care for the children. It should be noted that only one of the parents can benefit from a judgment in this context.
