Since Wednesday, June 16, 2021, the French have the right to hide the mask when they are outside. AT Toulouse however, it will remain mandatory to wear it every Saturday from June 19, 2021, in certain downtown streets.
A decision linked to the morphology of the city center
In a press release made public Thursday, June 17, 2021, the prefecture of Haute-Garonne indicates: “After consultation with the mayor of Toulouse and given the morphology of the city center and in particular the cramped nature of its streets, wearing a mask is compulsory every Saturday, from June 19, from 10 am to midnight. “
An obligation to wear the mask which applies within a perimeter delimited by the following channels (which are included): boulevard d’Arcoleboulevard de Strasbourg, boulevard Lazare-Carnot, Street Metz, place of Pont Neuf, quay of the Sea bream, place of the Sea bream, dock Lucien-Lombard, dock Saint Pierre in its section going to the boulevard Armand-Duportal, boulevard Lascrosses from Place Armand-Duportal.
“Common sense” according to Jean-Luc Moudenc
An obligation to wear a mask that caused a reaction Jean-Luc Moudenc, mayor of Toulouse, on the sidelines of the city council which takes place this Friday, June 18, 2021.
For me, this is common sense. The principle is: when we are in the open air we do not have a mask but when we are in contact with other people, we put it back on. We must maintain the precautionary rules when we are in potentially dangerous situations.
Always mandatory in certain circumstances
As a reminder, beyond this zone on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and midnight, the wearing of a mask remains mandatory outdoors in certain circumstances and places:
- in establishments open to the public in the open air when physical distancing measures cannot be respected
