During a press conference, Prime Minister Jean Castex indicated that one of the measures that will be suspended will be the mandatory use of the mask, as well as capacity limitations in recreational events and teleworking.

Currently, France presented an average of more than 300,000 infections by the Omicron variant of Covid-19 in the last week. On this day, 425,183 new positive cases were reported (more than 400,000 infections for the third consecutive day) and another 251 deaths from the virus.

Castex stated that "there are hopeful developments, although we do not ignore the tensions in our health system."

The nightclubs, closed since last December 10, will be able to reopen in accordance with the sanitary protocol from February 16; and concerts may resume in the same way, as well as consumption in stadiums, cinemas and transport.

"All French people over the age of 16 must prove their complete vaccination schedule to go to the theater, take public transport, see a show", but not those under that age, for whom it will be enough to present a negative test, Castex clarified.

In addition, the period to administer the booster vaccine against Covid-19 will be reduced from seven to four months.

France adds more than 15,600,000 infections by Covid-19, since the start of the pandemic, while the death toll exceeds 129,000 cases; and 27,931 citizens remain hospitalized, of which 3,842 are in Intensive Care Units (ICU), according to government authorities.
