France: Local governments given power to enforce wearing of masks in open-air places

In France, local governments have been granted power to order the wearing of masks in open-air public places as the country is battling against an increase in Covid-19 cases.

The northern town of Lille has already implemented this order.

Average new cases during the past week have surpassed a thousand case daily for the first time since May, when France started relaxing lockdown restrictions.

Wearing of masks has been obligatory in enclosed public places since the 20th July.
