Wearing a mask is no longer compulsory in Yvelines


The administrative court of Versailles on Wednesday suspended the prefectural decree making it compulsory to wear a mask outdoors in

The measure will have lasted twelve days.

The Versailles administrative court on Wednesday suspended the prefectural decree decided on December 31 and making it compulsory to wear a mask outdoors in the Yvelines department.

A first on the national territory which could snowball.

Seized by individuals, the summary judge considered that this "obligation could be imposed only on condition that the local epidemiological situation justifies it and that the wearing of a mask is limited to places and times of heavy traffic".

While recalling that the risk of contamination on the outside exists, he therefore considered that the measure “undermined, disproportionately and inappropriately (…) individual liberty”.

Asked by us, the Prefect of Yvelines said "take note of the decision of the administrative court" while adding "work to adapt the obligation to wear a mask outdoors.

In 2020, he had already suffered the suspension of his prefectural decree imposing the health pass in shopping centers in Yvelines.

"I have allowed myself to take it off for a long time when I am alone"

Among the inhabitants of the department, opinions are divided.

In front of a Montesson pharmacy, it was first and foremost astonishment that prevailed this Wednesday evening.


»Asks Séverine in search of FFP2 masks.

For a long time, she used it "only in transport", but in recent weeks and the rise of the Omicron variant, this mother of two daughters has used it "almost everywhere".

“When I am amazed at this decision,” she continues.

Because somewhere, she agrees with those who minimize the epidemic ”.

Either way, she will continue "to put it on until the situation calms down."

Damien, in his forties, believes that "all this should normally have been a matter of common sense, not justice".

“The problem,” he continues, “is that we cannot count on common sense and on people's good citizenship.

So we put rules, even if they are stupid and mean ”.

“It was silly and above all it was not respected, finally reacts José.

There are places where it doesn't mean anything.

I wear it where there are people of course, but I've been allowing myself to take it off when I'm alone for a long time.

Since I was actually vaccinated!
