Young French Children are Also Required to Wear Masks at School
Young French children must also wear mouth masks at school. These are students aged six and older, Prime Minister Jean Castex announced.
He said in the French Parliament that new efforts are needed to “protect our children, teachers and parents”.
Young people aged eleven and older had to wear mouth masks in France for some time. A new, national lockdown starts there at midnight.
Catering establishments and many other businesses have to be closed, but schools will remain open this time.
Prime Minister Castex said companies would be encouraged to allow employees to work from home “five days a week”.
