France ends the obligation to wear masks on planes and public transport

Earlier in the day it was announced that from Monday the European Union will remove the recommendation to wear a mask on board aircraft and at airports. The European flight safety agency EASA and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) no longer consider this necessary.

French minister Véran still recommends wearing a mask on public transport, especially for vulnerable people, because the virus has not yet disappeared from France. The number of corona infections is now an average of about 35,000 per day. At the end of January there were on average almost ten times as many.

The face mask is now only mandatory in France in healthcare institutions and hospitals. France also uses the corona pass there. According to 3G policy, people in healthcare facilities must be vaccinated, cured or tested before they can enter.
