• We have invited our readers to comment on the end of the compulsory mask in public transport, announced by Olivier Véran on Wednesday, and which will take effect this Monday.

  • “The end of wearing a mask is good news, I can't wait to finally be able to breathe!

    enthuses Alexandre, one of the readers who responded to our call for testimonials.

  • On the other hand, for our reader Laura, "it's not very complicated, the obligation disappears, but the virus is still active, so I will continue to wear the mask on the buses".

" Good news at last !

Tired of the mask in transport with the heat!

» exclaims Fred.

Like many of you, our liberated, liberated reader responded to our call for testimonies to find out if you will continue to wear the mask in public transport after the end of the obligation this Monday.

For Fred, it's no, just like Alexandre, who writes: “the end of wearing a mask is good news, I can't wait to finally be able to breathe, especially since the temperatures are gradually increasing!

Jonathan, he “just wants to say finally!

“Two hours of transport a day, finally freed from this mask.

[…] I am not anti-mask, but personally I would never have worn it, ”he adds.

While Erwan sees above all the practical side: "The great advantage is that when you don't have a mask on you, you can still take transport".

The fear of the ever-present virus

For Laura, on the contrary, "it's not very complicated, the obligation disappears, but the virus is still active, so I will continue to wear the mask on the buses".

The presence of Covid-19 means that some of our readers are not about to drop the mask, "it's just common sense", specifies Fanny.

Some are also more vehement like Jean-Louis for whom “the lifting of the obligation to wear a mask is nonsense”.

“What a bunch of morons!

“Storm David who warns:” Really, this virus, we catch it easily, I wear the mask everywhere except for lunch and I caught it so I do not even tell you about not wearing the mask in the metro”.

Another factor that pushes our readers to protect themselves is the promiscuity in the trains and the resulting risk of contagion.

“I will continue to wear the mask for the moment, because at rush hour in the metro, we are packed like anchovies,” says Christelle.

“It is preferable to keep wearing a mask during rush hours, for example on line 13, because it is very likely that a person tested positive will be in a car crowded with people”, estimates for his part Grégory.

Line 13 also serves as a foil for Mariette.

"I think the person who lifted this obligation never took line 13 of the Paris metro during rush hour," she says.

Given the proximity to other people, even outside Covid-19, it should be mandatory!

Call for collective responsibility

Especially since some passengers have weaknesses in the face of the coronavirus.

“I have two risk factors for a severe form of Covid-19, testifies Anne-France.

So yes, I will continue to wear the mask in transport.

And I regret that it is no longer mandatory.

“Danièle who is “a fragile person” will continue “to wear the mask and will not sit next to someone who is not wearing a mask”.

We must “not forget people with comorbidities, removing it in closed spaces is for me at risk”, supports Niky.

Our file on the coronavirus

Finally, our readers call for collective responsibility.

Like Mamadou, for whom “the problem is not the virus itself, but the others who do not respect anything (hygiene, patient who spits and sneezes without covering himself)”.

“It takes a bit of collective responsibility and awareness, believes Grégory.

We have the keys to act, but not enough awareness among citizens.

And Didier concludes: “To avoid risking anything, you might as well wear it even if it's unpleasant.

Health before all !
