The French government announced on Thursday that primary school students in areas with low CCP virus infection rates will no longer have to wear masks from next month.
Sep0 According to an official decree issued in September, the new rules will take effect from October to October and will cover less than 50 CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus-infected areas for every 100,000 citizens for five consecutive days.
Paris and the surrounding suburbs are not among the 47 metropolitan divisions or administrative districts where wearing a mask will compulsorily end, according to the Ministry of Health.
Officials shared a graphic on Sept. 2 showing a map with a red zone showing that the region has crossed the level of Covid-1 in 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last seven days.

Government spokesman Gabriel Attal said on September 29 that France was also planning to extend the state of emergency until next summer to combat the CCP virus epidemic.
Atal said in a press briefing after the cabinet meeting on Wednesday, “What we will propose in parliament is to keep it for a few more months until the summer, the possibility of using it.”
The expansion would mean that the government would have the power to extend or reinstate restrictive measures such as lockdowns, congestion restrictions and so-called health pass-vaccines or negative Covid-1 status status – which is currently needed until mid-November.
France’s Vaccine Passport, which was introduced in June after a draft law was approved by parliament, requires citizens to enter restaurants, clubs and several other public places.
The measures imposed by the government have been widely criticized and provoked mass protests across the country, with thousands of protesters taking to the streets to protest against the Kovid-1 mandate and passport.
