As lockdown exit is around the corner and while the vaccination campaign is going on in France and everywhere else in the world, the French Public Health Council considers vaccinated people can now no longer wear facemasks in the private sphere. The only conditions: complying with health guidelines, and only if they are around people vaccinated as well.

First vaccinated, first spared from facemask-wearing. This Sunday April 25, 2021, the French Public Health Council (HCSP) unveils new recommendations for people already vaccinated. According to the body, people vaccinated no longer have to wear a facemask in the private sphere. This good news remains subject to a few crucial conditions: only in the private sphere, in compliance with health guidelines, and health rules we all know for over a year now.

Furthermore, if someone is considered “at risk” is living in this private sphere, the HCSP’s recommendation is not to be taken into account. If the person at risk has been vaccinated as well, it is no longer needed to wear a mask. Same thing is someone vaccinated showing no risk lives with you. Among the other recommendations from the institution, it is possible to include people vaccinated in the “contract tracing” policy. Therefore, even vaccinated people are still considered as “contacts at risk even though this risk is probably smaller”, the HCSP claimed.

Furthermore, the French Public Health Council would rather warn the French on an essential topic of the upcoming health policy: no matter if someone has been vaccinated or not, it is vital to remain extremely cautious anyway. “It is impossible to assess the risk for people who have enjoyed a complete vaccinal scheme of contaminating other people”, the body reminds. So far, “the weak vaccine coverage” and the “uncertainty” related to variants incite to be cautious.
