As a result, François Bayrou, who returned to his Pau town hall this Thursday morning, will also go into solitary confinement:
“I will take all the necessary precautions”. Francois Bayrou
“In the village hall of the Elysée”
On the conditions of organization of this dinner, François Bayrou told us that it was held “in the village hall of the Elysée.” “It wasn’t in a living room. There was plenty of room. We were spaced far enough apart and each guest had a microphone so they could hear each other.”
The mayor of Pau assures him:
“As far as I could see, the president was not showing any symptoms.” Francois Bayrou
François Bayrou will therefore spend the next seven days teleworking. “I will also be tested,” he says.
