about a possible tightening of the sanitary protocol in shops, especially supermarkets, in order

"to face any eventuality"

, declared Wednesday Dominique Schelcher, president of Système U , on FranceInfo.

"It's been a few days that our profession has been discussing with the public authorities to face any eventuality"

, according to Dominique Schelcher.

Among the avenues mentioned to

"strengthen the sanitary protocol for the following phases"

include a tightening of the customer reception gauge in stores, from 1 customer for 8 square meters currently to 1 customer for 10 square meters.

"We are completely ready for it at Système U, it will not pose a problem,"

said Dominique Schelcher, also suggesting

"more stringent controls at the entrance to stores to ensure compliance with this gauge"

.

Asked about the possibility of a new closure of shelves and shops not offering products deemed to be essential, as during the second confinement, he said that it was

"one of the major discussions underway with each other ”

.

"We want these departments to be kept open and therefore also to maintain as many forms of businesses as possible, including small ones, in return for an extremely reinforced protocol

," he added, anticipating

"great economic difficulties if it was to take a very severe turn ”

.

Between "maintaining the current framework" and "very tight confinement"

According to him, a meeting is scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Bercy with the Minister of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) Alain Griset,

“on the health protocol”

, but the information was not immediately confirmed by Bercy .

At the end of a defense council on Wednesday, the executive gave itself time to reflect before possibly giving a turn of the screw in the face of the Covid-19 epidemic, noting however that the cover- fire at 6:00 pm "does not sufficiently slow down" the spread of the virus.

Government spokesman Gabriel Attal stressed that

"different scenarios"

were being studied, ranging

"from maintaining the current framework"

, a track he deemed

"unlikely"

, to

"very tight confinement"

.
