Martinique’s Mask Wearing Protocol to be lifted in Schools

Come Thursday, April 21 a new protocol will come into effect in schools as the wearing of masks will no longer be compulsory in class.

As the government on the French island continues to ease health restrictions linked to Covid-19, wearing a mask will no longer be compulsory in closed places for students and staff with the sole exception being on school buses.

According to French publication RCI, “the transition to level 1 of the protocol illustrates the improvement in the health situation in Martinique, after the announcement of the Prefect, Stanislas Cazelles, last week, lifting the obligation to wear a mask in enclosed spaces.”

Officials, however, maintained that should a spike in COVID-19 infection numbers begin, they could revisit the mask mandate.
