If the health pass continues to be applied, the mask will be optional at school from October and the gauges will be lifted in certain establishments that receive the public. These reductions only concern departments with an incidence rate below the alert threshold.
The obligation to wear a mask in primary schools will be lifted from Monday, October 4 in the departments where the incidence rate of Covid will be less than 50 per 100,000 inhabitants. This is the government’s main announcement on Wednesday.
The gauges that apply in certain establishments open to the public will also be lifted in these same departments, said Gabriel Attal.
In Occitania, for the time being, only Tarn (45 cases per 100.00 inhabitants), Gers (46), Lozère (47) and Aveyron (49) are below the alert threshold, according to the most recent Public Health France figures for the week of September 12 to 18. They should, except surprise, remain on their path to decline in the epidemic.
Lot (51), Tarn-et-Garonne (53), Pyrénées-Orientales (56), Haute-Garonne (57) are very close, and should within two weeks reach a lower incidence rate to 50. The Hautes-Pyrénées (65 cases per 100,000) can also reasonably hope to be in the right basket by October 4.
The margin is more uncertain for Aude (73 cases per 100,000 inhabitants) and Hérault (83) for which a sharp decline in the epidemic is needed in the next ten days. However, this threshold should not be crossed for Gard (96) and Ariège (120) which will probably continue to impose the mask on children at school.
For now, adults and students from 6 years old (elementary, college and high school students) must wear the mask indoors. On the other hand, it is simply recommended for children in kindergarten.
