Wearing of a face mask will no longer be mandatory in public transport in France as of Monday, as the last major health restrictions in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic are being lifted.

 

Until now, wearing a face mask was mandatory on subways, buses, trains, planes and taxis.

 

The decision marks the end of the last major restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic in public places, and confirms that the health and political anxiety resulting from the epidemic has receded, more than two years after the outbreak of Covid began in Europe.

 

In total, COVID-19 has killed more than 147,000 people in France, where 79.3 percent of the population has been fully vaccinated.

 

In the past weeks, COVID-19-related infections and hospitalizations have declined after a very long winter wave.

 

The pandemic did not remain at the fore, even when the number of infections was high at the beginning of the year, and the health situation was rarely mentioned during the presidential campaign that saw Emmanuel Macron being re-elected.
