Covid-19: news and useful information on the Paris La Défense area
Paris La Défense is home to 42,000 inhabitants, 180,000 employees, 45,000 students and several thousand visitors on a daily basis.
Faced with the health crisis at Covid-19, the region has implemented an effective health policy to enable people to move around in complete peace of mind and with respect for barrier gestures: the wearing of masks, the provision of hydroalcoholic gel, daily disinfection of public spaces, social distancing, as well as screening and vaccination tests in several centres.
Even though all of these actions have already been implemented throughout the country, the neighbourhood has decided to play the serenity and safety card, by deploying a whole series of hygiene measures in compliance with the recommendations of the health authorities.
In the most frequented places, you will find hydroalcoholic gel dispensers. More than forty dispensers are thus scattered throughout the business district, bearing in mind that hands should be washed with soap whenever possible. Don't hesitate to use them!
Paris La Défense has also launched a programme to disinfect equipment located in the public areas of the business district:
- Lifts and escalators are disinfected twice a day. The establishment has also installed self-adhesive markings in the cabins reminding people of the rules of social distancing to be observed and has put up a display reminding them of barrier gestures.
- Coach terminal: general disinfection of the Jules Verne terminal has been carried out. It is followed by daily disinfection of the terminal.
- The car parks in Paris La Défense are cleaned and disinfected twice a day in all areas where there is frequent contact.
- Street furniture in the business district is also disinfected daily.
However, it is advisable to avoid meeting together, even in small groups, and when this is not possible, to keep a distance from each other, taking care to wear a protective mask. In this case, also avoid touching your mouth, nose or eyes without washing your hands. Don't forget that wearing a mask is compulsory throughout the country.
The La Défense district has several screening centres, including the CNIT, laboratories and mobile structures.
Vaccination centres have also been opened on the outskirts of La Défense, which should make it possible, over the next few weeks, to increase the number of vaccinations throughout the territory, which may herald better days in a few weeks' time.
As a reminder, the non-food stores in the Westfield Les 4 Temps and Cnit shopping centre have been closed since the end of January, following the government's announcements to close shopping centres of over 20,000 sq.m..
The La Défense district remains attentive to its residents, employees, students and visitors in order to accompany them in this "strange" time we are living in, and which has above all made us aware that it is very important to show solidarity with one another.
In the meantime, take care of yourself and stay tuned for changes and new measures that may be taken in the coming weeks!

Closing of the Westfield Les 4 Temps shopping centre
In view of the Prime Minister's latest announcements a few days ago, non-food shopping centres with a surface area of more than 20,000 metres are currently closed, with no date for a forthcoming lifting of restrictions. The shops in the Wesfield Les 4 Temps and Cnit shopping centre, except for food chains (Auchan and Monoprix), are therefore no longer authorised to open. Click and collect sales are still possible for all the brands, as are takeaway and delivery sales.
