The City of Rouen had announced it, it is now confirmed: the prefect of Seine-Maritime has decided to lift the prefectural decree of July 20, 2021 which imposes the wearing a mask on public roads in certain outdoor areas, in particular markets, near train stations, bus stops and schools.


This decision, announced Saturday, October 2 by press release and applicable from Monday 4 October, was taken by the prefecture because of the favorable evolution of the health context in the department. As of September 30, 2021, the incidence rate stood at 37.4 new cases per 100,000 inhabitants, or below the first alert threshold of 50 cases.

To these measures are added the lifting of gauges for the standing concerts, in the discos and the dancing bars, as well as the suspension of the obligation to wear a mask in schools for children between 6 and 11 years old.


The Prefect of Seine-Maritime, however, calls on all residents to “maintain their vigilance and continue to apply barrier measures and gestures on a daily basis, particularly in enclosed spaces where the obligations to wear a mask are maintained”.

And if the health situation deteriorates again, the prefect reports that he “will take without delay the regulatory measures necessary to curb the circulation of the virus.”
