The speed of spread is accelerating and the Caledonian government, which wants to limit contacts, has modified the order on containment. “The government has decided to restrict the list of businesses authorized to receive visitors”, declares Yannick Slamet, government spokesperson in charge of health.

In detail, this covers auto equipment and agricultural spare parts businesses, car and machine rentals, and temporary employment agencies. There are also computer businesses, newsagents and newspapers.

“These businesses like all the others can continue their activity on the basis of withdrawal of order or delivery”, continues the government spokesperson.

On the health front, the government has announced that PCR tests are no longer used to confirm an antigen test in order to detect positive cases as quickly as possible.
