While wearing a mask has become mandatory outdoors in Paris since December 31, 2021, the justice suspended the prefectural decree framing this measure this Thursday, January 13, 2021 in the evening.

After the Yvelines, it’s the turn of the capital to see the obligation to wear a mask outdoors suspended by the courts. the Paris administrative court made its decision this Thursday, January 13, 2021 in the evening after being seized in summary by law professors. The measure having been judged illegal, l’prefectural decree was therefore suspended.

As a reminder, theobligation to wear a mask outdoors had made a comeback since December 31, 2021, following government announcements facing the relaunch ofcoronavirus epidemic. The measure, which was to concern mainly large cities, had spread over almost the entireIle-de-France, the region being particularly affected by the epidemic outbreak, particularly with the propagation du variant Omicron.

So following this decision, wearing a mask is no longer compulsory outside in Paris. According to information relayed by the newspaper Liberation, justice considers that the measures put in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus must remain proportionate. the Administrative court of Paris also asks the police Department to take a decree more suited to the health situation.
