France hopes to reopen its borders to travel from within Europe from June 15th, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has announced. It seems that all EU travelers - this includes UK travelers too - will be allowed to go to France from Mid June.

Bars and restaurants will be able to open their doors from June 2nd, as well as campings. The social distancing will still be necessary in these places though. Staff must wear masks and customers must also wear masks when moving around. Access to beaches, lakes and rivers will also be fully restored, Mr Philippe said.

Although travellers arriving from the UK or Spain are still the subject to a voluntary quarantine (which France introduced as a reciprocal measure for those countries) it is believed that these measures will be lifted in the coming days.

So, most likely we can go carp fishing in France from the 15th of June. Yesterday Philippe added at the press conference that the government was in favour of "reopening the interior EU borders from June 15 without a 14-day quarantine."
