In the rest of Ile-de-France, the prefectures have reimposed the obligation to wear a mask outside from Friday in all the departments of Val-d’Oise, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne, as well as in the towns of Essonne and the city centers of the towns of Yvelines.
Seine-Saint-Denis followed suit on Thursday with other Ile-de-France prefectures in order to stem the outbreak of Covid-19 contamination due to the Omicron variant.
“Due to the severe deterioration of the health situation, wearing a mask is compulsory in #SeineSaintDenis for people eleven years old and over on public roads and in places open to the public”, tweeted the prefecture of Seine-Saint-Denis. This obligation was already in force in places of high traffic, such as the markets of Saint-Ouen or Montreuil.
Offenders are liable to a fine of 135 euros. Restrictive measures have also been taken throughout Ile-de-France to limit activities during New Year’s Eve.
France records records for Covid-19 contamination with 208,000 new cases on Wednesday, after around 180,000 during the previous twenty-four hours.
