What's the transport situation?
The major effect on transport so far is the USA's decision to ban arrivals from Schengen zone countries. Announced on Wednesday night by US president Donald Trump, not everything is clear about the ban at this stage.
It seems that American citizens are not covered by it, neither are people who travel from France to the US via the UK, nor are flights from the US to France. However it's early days and it's possible that some of these loopholes will be closed in the coming days. So while it's still possible for Americans to come to France, they might face some problems getting back.
Away from transatlantic routes, most flight disruptions are down to individual airlines cancelling and France itself has not imposed any restrictions on flights.
However travel between France and Italy is badly disrupted as airlines including Air France, Ryanair and Easyjet have cancelled all flights until April.
At present no airline has announced that it will stop flying to France. British Airways has said that it will cancel some of its flights between France and the UK later in March, but this is due to falling demand rather than any health restrictions in place.
Air France announced on Wednesday that anyone who wants to cancel their flight between now and May 31st due to coronavirus fears can do so free of charge.
City public transport is running as normal, although it's possible that some services may be restricted from Monday because of the closure of the schools (more on that below).
That said, if you would rather avoid the Metro altogether and stay out in the fresh air, Paris has lots of transport alternatives.
