It is no longer mandatory to wear a mask in the cinema

The mask will no longer be mandatory in places subject to the vaccination pass from Monday, this is a further relaxation of health restrictions that is expected as the pandemic subsides considerably. No more masks in museums, cinemas, restaurants, but it will continue to be mandatory in transport, such as the train or the plane, where the pass is also required.

For two weeks, protocol has been relaxed in various public places, bars, cafes, transport and cinemas. On February 16, the ban on the consumption of sweets and drinks in dark rooms, in force since January 3, was lifted. Justified measures, according to the Government and the Higher Council of Public Health (HCSP), due to the epidemic decrease and the constant decrease in the number of hospitalizations since the peak reached at the end of January.

In front of the deputies, on Thursday, Olivier VĂ©ran repeated “consider lifting the pass in mid-March” if the downward trajectory is confirmed, particularly in terms of hospitalizations. The Minister of Health considered with “surveillance” and “optimism” back to life “normal”what could be considered “In the next weeks”.

The decline from the fifth wave that began last fall continues: 25,484 people infected with Covid-19 were hospitalized on Friday, or 634 fewer than the day before. Among hospitalized patients, 2,546 are treated in critical care services that receive the most serious forms, that is, 110 fewer in 24 hours. The government mentioned a step below the threshold of 1,500 critical care patients in mid-March among the criteria for lifting all or part of the vaccination pass.
