Because of the spread of Covid-19 in the country, the French government instates new measures. During a press brief held this Thursday November 25, Health Minister Olivier Véran announced facemask-wearing was compulsory again indoors in places open to the public even subject to the health pass.

It was a highly anticipated address. This Thursday November 25, 2021, the French Health Minister held a press brief to specify the measures decided by the government. The goal? Stopping this fifth wave.

Although the executive does not plan lockdown or curfew or early closing of stores, they yet have announced other measures related to vaccination, health pass and facemask-wearing.

Speaking of facemask-wearing, Olivier Véran said facemask was compulsory in closed places open to the public again such as concert or theater venues, or even movie theaters. A decree is to be issued tomorrow, Friday November 26, specifying facemask-wearing indoors, even in places subject to the health pass already. “Even in the event of health pass in a place open to the public, you will have to wear a facemask”, Olivier Véran insisted on this Thursday.
