The government spokesman announced Wednesday, September 22 at the end of the health defense council of the first reductions concerning the wearing of masks at school. We take stock.

Wearing a mask will no longer be compulsory for students from CP to CM2 in the forty or so departments in which the incidence rate has been less than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for five days. Government spokesman Gabriel Attal announced the good news Wednesday, September 22, at the exit of the health defense council.

The relief is scheduled for October 4. For many parents, this is a relief. “It was painful because in class, I was in full sun, I was sweating,” says a schoolgirl, also delighted. To date, around thirty departments meet this condition. Note that for the moment, the rule that a student tested positive results in the closure of the entire class, however, remains valid.
