More details are emerging as to how the ban is affecting coffee shops, with some cafes closing down and others opening.Read more The French government has banned coffee shops from the streets of the capital in the face of the new restrictions.
In the capital, cafes are only allowed to operate from 10am to 9pm.
The number of people allowed to visit the shops has also been reduced from 30,000 to 20,000.
A similar ban is also in place in Paris’s northern suburbs, and the rest of the country.
The number of cafes in France has been halved from 50,000 in 2015 to 15,000 last year.
The ban was first imposed after the Paris terror attacks of November 2015, and was lifted after the November 2016 attacks in Brussels, which left 32 people dead.
The measures have been welcomed by some cafés, who say they have become an important part of the Parisian economy and are providing a source of income for their customers.
The cafe ban was criticised by Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, who said it was unfair and needed to be changed.
