The mayor of Nice Christian Estrosi imposed the wearing of the mask since Monday.



  • The mayor LR of Villeneuve-Loubet had posters of a masked boar put up.

  • Lionnel Luca attacked the prefect's order requiring the wearing of a mask, in his town in particular.

A wild boar decked out in a surgical mask has appeared on the billboards of Villeneuve-Loubet, near Nice.

This is the response - a bit provocative - from the mayor (LR) Lionnel Luca.

The councilor is fiercely opposed to the compulsory wearing of a mask in the open air in his town, which a prefectural decree has imposed for a few days, from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. as part of the measures to combat the spread of the disease. Covid-19.

"It is absurd to take a global decree"

As of Saturday, Lionnel Luca denounced "a unilateral and brutal decision": "I am not anti-mask since I took a municipal decree on August 26 to impose the mask around the schools, nurseries and college!

All of our outdoor shows this summer were with masks.


What Lionnel Luca rejects is the widespread wearing of a mask in a town "which has no urban center of high human density but on the contrary benefits from an exceptional natural environment which is very ventilated.

It is therefore absurd to take a comprehensive decree, without nuance and above all without having debated it.


The administrative tribunal deliberates this Wednesday

The town seized the administrative court of Nice as part of a procedure of "summary freedom" to try to suspend the decision of the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes.

The debate before the court is scheduled for Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. and the decision expected in the afternoon.

Decrees requiring the wearing of masks have already been canceled by the courts.

This was still the case on Monday: the Strasbourg administrative court ordered the prefect of Bas-Rhin to rewrite her decree on the compulsory wearing of a mask in Strasbourg.

In Nice, the administrative court had on the contrary validated, in August, the appeal for excess of power brought against the municipal decree of Christian Estrosi.
