Wearing a mask again mandatory from Monday in Cher

The Covid-19 epidemic has been evolving at a rapid pace for several days. For the week of 9 to 15 November, epidemiological indicators show an incidence rate

at 130.90 and a positivity rate (**) of 6% in Cher. In the week of October 31 to November 6, the incidence rate on the ward was 64.10.

  • In this connection, the prefecture decided on Friday by prefecture decree to order people over the age of 11, indoors and outdoors, to wear the mask, including when the health card is valid, in the following places from Monday 22 November:
  • during gatherings, meetings or activities in all municipalities of the department of Cher,
  • at food and non-food markets, Christmas markets, flea markets, garage sales, sales, unpacking sales in all municipalities in the department of Cher, including those covered by the health card
  • in outdoor spaces in public transport and train stations located in all municipalities in the Cher department

indoors and outdoors, in all establishments open to the public, including those covered by health passports, when the physical distance between two persons (4 m² per person) can not be respected

The mask will therefore make a comeback in the department’s bars and restaurants. “In these establishments, where it is not possible to secure a distance of at least one meter between each person or to set aside 4 m² per person, it again becomes mandatory to wear a mask to travel. Once you are installed and ready to eat , the mask can be removed, “says prefect Jean-Christophe Bouvier. The nightclubs remain open,” it will simply be necessary to dance with the mask. “The same story for sports halls, cinemas and theaters, where it is again mandatory to wear a mask.
