6:45 am.

81% of nursing home residents vaccinated, according to new estimates.

81.1% of nursing home residents are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, but only 41.9% of professionals in these establishments, according to new data published by Public Health France (SpF).

The health agency had stopped publishing these indicators for several weeks, having found that they were overestimated.

"Nursing home residents are not identified as such in the Vaccine Covid database", which documents the vaccination campaign in France, recalls Sophie Vaux, epidemiologist at SpF, during an online press point.

Also, any dose injected into a nursing home to a person over 65 was counted as the vaccination of a nursing home resident.

But outside workers or residents' spouses were able to benefit from an injection to avoid throwing a vial, she continued.

Some establishments thus had vaccination coverage rates greater than 100%.

6:40 am.

Music Festival: "Mini-concerts will be possible in bars and restaurants," announces Roselyne Bachelot.

The Minister of Culture also announces that the health protocol is relaxed because it originally provided for concerts only outdoors.

6:35 am. Details on the regulations for wearing a mask in Paris.

In a press release, the police headquarters indicates that wearing a mask will be compulsory in the capital on markets and in second-hand shops. It will also be used for all gatherings of people of all kinds on public roads, whether they are protest or festive gatherings. But also in public transport queues and in front of schools and universities, at entry and exit times, as well as in front of places of worship. Finally, the mask must be worn in the queues that are formed outside (cinema, entrance to a store).

Wearing a mask outdoors is no longer compulsory except in certain circumstances.

The Prefect of Police specifies the conditions for reducing the obligation to wear a mask outside in Paris.
