The first concerns the mask.
It will now be compulsory in establishments open to the public (ERP) which are already subject to the health pass.
Its port in these places is in addition to all the situations already known (markets, gatherings, public transport etc.)

“The sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks on public roads are prohibited in Strasbourg with the exception of the Rohrschollen nature reserve, the Robertsau forest, the Neuhof forest, the entire Rhine port area ( outside the Deux-Rives garden), ”wrote the prefecture in a press release.
