The French government has published a provisional plan of which departments will be graded red or green after May 11th. They have also introduced an amber category - for departments where the ultimate colour is still in balance.
The ultimate decision will be based on three criteria
The number of cases of Covid 19 in the department within a 7 day period
The pressure on the capacity of ventilators within the regional hospitals
The preparedness of the local system of testing and contact tracing
We will endeavour to update you here as and when we receive more information about the current situation.
