[Newsphopick=Hani Na] A day after lockdowns began lifting across the country, a law extending France's state of emergency went into effect on Tuesday.
The state of emergency law gives the government the power to enforce measures to avoid a second Covid-19 peak, reports the CNN.
France has been in a state of emergency since March 17 and the new law extends this through July 10.
The law gives the state the power to enforce measures like restricting travel to within 100 kilometers (62 miles) from home, making masks mandatory on public transport, and banning gatherings of more than 10 people.
The bill passed through parliament this weekend and was reviewed by the Constitutional Court on Monday.
