A fine of EUR 135 can be imposed on a person without a mask.
In France, as of today, face masks are mandatory in all public indoor spaces. Such facilities include shops, supermarkets and banks.
Until now, the mask obligation has been in force in public transport in France.
The purpose of the mask coercion is to control the spread of the coronavirus. According to the government, there have been signs of an increase in coronavirus infections in France.
In French healthcare, it has been noted that the R-score has risen to more than one. This means that each infected person in turn infects about 1.2 people.
According to the government’s announcement, a fine of 135 euros can be imposed on a person indoors in a public interior.
In France, almost 212,000 people have been infected with the coronavirus so far, and there have been more than 30,100 corona-related deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University. There are more than 3,200 infections and more than 460 deaths per million inhabitants. The corresponding figures in Finland are more than 1,300 and 59.
