Heatwave lockdowns: Region in France bans outdoor gatherings
“Officials in France banned people from attending concerts, outdoor gatherings, and events due to safety concerns over a heatwave. … Outdoor events – including, ironically, annual ‘Resistance’ celebrations – are banned until the officials declare the heatwave is over. They’re even restricting some indoor events that don’t have air conditioning. … Nonetheless, rather than let people take responsibility for themselves – to hydrate or stay home – French officials are comfortable deciding for them.”
