Revitalized by the health crisis, masks “Made in France” look for a future

PARIS (Reuters) – In public places in France where entry is subject to the COVID-19 vaccine pass people will no longer have to wear masks indoors, the health ministry said in a statement on Friday.

It said masks will remain mandatory in public transport and in indoor places not subject to the vaccine pass.

The new rule – which takes effect on February 28 – is in line with a health council recommendation and follows a slowdown of the COVID-19 infection rate.
