French President Emanuel Macron laid out a plan on Thursday to reopen the country after the Pandemic, which will also allow international travelers to visit the country for the first time in over a year.

The plan laid out by the president shows the country will be coming out of the lockdown in four major steps.

The schools will be re-opening on a part-time basis for students, starting May-3. However, shops and bars will remain shut, Forbes reported.

Forbes also noted that the bars and restaurants can serve outside starting May 19 with a maximum of 6 people per table.

Shops and cultural places will be allowed to open. However, a curfew will remain in place until 9 pm.

Foreign tourists will be allowed to visit France from the ninth of June. However, the curfew will be extended up to 11 pm.

The final phase is set on the thirtieth of June for the end of curfew. Larger groups of people will be allowed to congregate at cultural and sporting events.
