End of the mask at primary school on Monday in 47 departments – France


A list of 54 departments was published this Thursday morning at Official newspaper. Those in which a high circulation of the epidemic is observed and where students will therefore have to continue to wear the mask in primary schools. Ille-et-Vilaine is one of them.

By deduction, we therefore know the 47 departments in which schoolchildren will be able to remove the mask from Monday and where the gauges can be lifted in establishments open to the public. These are areas where the incidence rate is below the alert threshold, ie 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, for at least five consecutive days. In Brittany, Finistère, Morbihan and Côtes-d’Armor are on the list.

However, this reduction in the health protocol does not apply to adults. Teachers, as well as all staff working with students, will continue to wear the mask, the ministry said.

Finally, the rules for wearing a mask indoors remain unchanged in middle and high schools.
