From this Monday, the mask, mandatory in France in all closed spaces

Paris / France generalizes as of this Monday the obligation to wear a mask in all closed spaces that receive the public and establishes a fine of 135 euros in case of non-compliance, when “signs of a slight deterioration, but still uncertain” of the epidemiological situation are found.

In a document released this Sunday, the General Directorate of Health (DGS) specifies which are the spaces in which the use of the mask will be mandatory and the reasons for this decision, specifically the difficulties in respecting the distance in closed spaces with high influx of people and the absence of effective ventilation.

The DGS insists that the mask alone does not offer sufficient protection if other sanitary protection measures, such as distance or hand hygiene, are not followed.

In France, since the uncontrolling began on May 11, it was already mandatory to wear a mask on public transport, in cinemas, theaters, show or conference rooms and in restaurants, bars and cafes when not consuming.

Also in libraries, churches and other religious centers, in indoor sports facilities, hotels, mountain shelters, in bus, train, sea terminal or airport stations.

From tomorrow to that long list all the stores and malls, the covered markets, the administrations and the banks are added.

In companies and administrative offices, its use will only be compulsory in areas where the public is received.

The internal operation continues to be governed by the rules of labor law and, in particular, by those that have been in force since the start of the de-escalation, which prioritize teleworking whenever possible and impose “strict respect for hygiene and physical distancing ”.

If this is not possible, you must use a mask.

It will not be mandatory to wear a mask in public spaces outdoors, that is, in the streets, parks, the sea, beaches or on roads and trails.

Beyond the issue of masks and given that there is an increase in new cases of coronaviruses, outbreaks and also in the number of consultations and admissions in intensive care units, the DGS recalls that to limit the risks of a regrowth, They have reinforced prevention measures.

The tests have been expanded (there are 700,000 weekly available, for a population of 67 million people) in order to adopt “a more offensive attitude towards the search for virus carriers”, symptomatic or not.

A viral testing campaign has been launched in the Paris region for more than 1.3 million people.

France registers a total of about 175,000 COVID-19 cases and more than 30,000 deaths. (July 19, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
