In some primary schools, France will stop requiring COVID-19 mask wearing in some schools ...

According to a government statement released on Thursday, students will no longer have to wear protective face masks in French primary schools in areas with fewer COVID-19 infections, according to an earlier version of the government.

According to health ministry data, Paris and surrounding suburbs aren't among the 47 metropolitan departments or administrative districts where mandatory wearing of masks will be banned.

The move comes after a change in the COVID-19 situation in France since the government accelerated its vaccination initiative.

For five consecutive days, masks will cease to be mandatory in primary schools. For more than 50 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 citizens must be limited.

France is planning to extend a state of emergency until next summer to deal with the epidemic, according to government spokesman Gabriel Attal, on Wednesday. read more
