Most shops will reopen Monday as planned, in what Prime Minister Edouard Philippe previously said would be a "very gradual process." Some areas will face stricter measures than others, with Philippe saying the country would be "divided in two."
France will be split into red and green zones, with lockdown measures stricter in red areas. Primary school students across the whole country will return to school on Monday, with classes limited to 15 students.
The French government has warned that strict restrictions could be reinstated if people do not respect social distancing rules.
There are widespread concerns that opening society too quickly could spark a second wave of coronavirus cases throughout the country. 177,094 cases have been recorded across France, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally.
Elsewhere, a bill extending the country's state of emergency was redirected to France's Constitutional Court for review. The redirection means the law is effectively not in place Monday.
The halted emergency law limits non-essential travel in France to 100 kilometers and limits access to Paris' public transport system to people with official documentation. The constitutional council is expected to issue a judgment tonight on the delayed law.
The council will consider the bill “in order to ensure better legal guarantees around the implementation of the lockdown measures," according to a joint press release issued on Monday by the official residence of French President Emmanuel Macron, and the office of France's prime minister.
