The new “confinement” rules came into force on Saturday April 3, 2021 for all metropolitan departments, for a period of 4 weeks. As Emmanuel Macron announced, a travel certificate is mandatory and as in previous confinements, the of the country concerned have the opportunity to take the air around their home. But the new rules now allow unlimited travel within a maximum radius of 10 km. Here's how to calculate it quickly and easily.
The establishment of a new containment in the hope of curbing the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic was announced by the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron on Thursday March 31 in a new televised address. The measures are a little more flexible compared to the two previous confinements, but they are logically more strict than those of the curfew. The measurement is effective from April 3 to 2 mwho 2021. About the curfew, it is maintained 19PM to 6PM across the country.
Regarding travel between 6 a.m. and 19 p.m. related to walking, individual physical activity, outdoor activity or the needs of pets, the travel certificate is not mandatory, it can be replaced by proof of address. Also, it can be tricky to make sure you are always within the authorized 10 km radius. To help you, there are free online tools that allow this famous 10-kilometer radius around your home to be shown on a map.
How to calculate the 10 kilometer radius around the home
To make sure you don't get a fine of 135 euros, we recommend that you check out one of these free tools.
Geoportail, the most “official” method
Géoportail, the site of the National Geographic Institute, offers a mapping service competing with Google Maps with particularly advanced features which should facilitate this task. To calculate the radius:
- Go to the map Géoportail
- Enter your postal address (street, avenue or boulevard + postal code and city)
- In the right bar, click on the adjustable wrench then Measurements> Calculate an isochronous
- Enter your address in the Departure field
- Select isodistance specifying 10 km, transport on foot and departure
- Click on Calculate
A green area is then displayed on the map. We recommend that you take a screenshot of it and put it in the photos on your smartphone - the Géoportail site is not yet as practical as Google Maps. According to our tests, the site seems to perform better on Google Chrome and Firefox.Go to Geoportail
Mappy, the fastest solution
To calculate the 10km zone not to be exceeded during confinement, Mappy has implemented a simple and effective solution. This is how to do it:
- Go to the website Mappy > Radius calculation in km (link just below)
- Enter your address or let the site geolocate you
- Entrez the size of the containment radius if necessary (default set to 10 km)
- Click on Send and voila
ESRI Your country, the more intuitive alternative
The ESRI tool Your country is pre-configured to easily calculate the 10 km radius on a map. For it :
- Access to ESRI Your country
- Search for an address or place, or use your current location and click Calculate the area
- You can also zoom then click on any point on the map then press Calculate the area to display the perimeter
The method has the advantage over the month, compared to the Geoportal site, of being much more intuitive.Go to ESRI Your country
CovidRadius, not necessarily the most complete
CovidRadius allows, like ESRI Your country, to calculate the perimeter on a map without necessarily having to learn what an isochron is. The solution makes it possible to find the perimeter around an address very easily. However, it is not so easy to find the perimeter around a point chosen at random on the map. To use CovidRadius:
- Visit CovidRadius
- Enter the address in the left column
The perimeter around your address is then displayed immediately. However, as you will see it is then a “bird's-eye” perimeter and not an isochrone which would represent the real distances to your home. We hope that there will be a tolerance between the two calculations, this not being clearly specified on the derogatory exit certificate.Access CovidRadius
