In the opinion of parents, teachers and primary children concerned, it is undoubtedly one of the health measures which weighs the most on the functioning of the classes. Good news: wearing a mask may soon be no longer compulsory inside schools.

Indeed, if this is not the scenario that was chosen for the start of the September school year, the lighter scenario (green) provided for by the health protocol makes it possible to dispense with a mask in primary school. However, a possible reduction in health measures discussed in the health defense council this Wednesday morning could lead to this passage from the current level, yellow, to green.

Is this the right timing? The teachers’ union Sgen-CFDT is not convinced of this. “Given the variant that is circulating, there is a risk that young people are the new reservoir of the epidemic”, explains its general secretary Catherine Nave-Bekhti to LCI. “There are very few regions in France where the incidence rate in children under ten is less than 50 per 100,000 so in our opinion it is too early to lift the wearing of the mask,” she concludes.

On the other hand, it is not on the agenda to put an end to the mask, neither in middle school, nor in high school, secondary students having to wear it even in the event of passage in green protocol.
