We all face the same problem: the coronavirus,” Chan said.

Some town halls have tried to make the wearing of masks compulsory in public space, to no avail. In addition, running with a mask is more troublesome than protective, as long as one does not come into close contact with another individual.

Every day, Le Parisien takes action to answer your questions around the coronavirus . Today we are interested in the questioning of Pierre, who asks whether to wear a mask when jogging.

In terms of legality, the question of the obligation to wear a mask to go out on the street - and to do jogging in particular - had some twists and turns on Thursday.

Canada's top doctor says non-medical masks can help stop the spread of COVID-19

  Canada's top doctor says non-medical masks can help stop the spread of COVID-19 The new advice represents a reversal for Tam, who has been reluctant to recommend the use of masksDr. Theresa Tam, head of the Public Health Agency of Canada, said today that Canadians can use non-medical masks in tandem with social distancing measures to limit the transmission of the deadly virus when out grocery shopping or at a pharmacy.

Two municipalities had decided this week to issue a decree to this effect. This was the case at Sceaux (Hauts-de-Seine) and Royan (Charente-Maritime). In the first city, the measure was applied two days, Wednesday and this Thursday. At Royan, the decree was to enter into force on Thursday. Violators risked a fine of 38 euros.

But Thursday, the Minister of the Interior Christophe Castaner said he "asked the prefects to speak with mayors to withdraw their orders during the entire period of confinement". According to him, such a choice "is not consistent with the requirement of confinement": "It may suggest that we can go out if we have a mask.

From his home, the presenter continues to appear in the news at 1 p.m. of TF1 during this confinement period.

While other cities - such as Paris, Cannes or Nice - have recently announced that they are considering making the mask mandatory, Christophe Castaner has not dismantled the hypothesis of such a measure in France in the weeks to come. He puts forward the possibility of working with these mayors, "according to the national doctrine that will be implemented for out of confinement when the time comes" and on "local adaptations if they are necessary".

Not before the end of confinement

In summary, perhaps we will have to wear a mask to jog when the time for deconfinement comes. But in the meantime, you will not be punished if you run your nose and mouth in the open air.

Contacted, the Charente-Maritime prefecture confirms that the municipal decree was not applied in Royan, after a discussion between the mayor and the prefect on Thursday. "The mayor cannot, with his police powers, take more restrictive measures than those of the state under the law on the state of health emergency. Only the prefect can locally harden travel measures if necessary, ”explains the prefecture to the Parisian.

In the Palestinian Territories, the state of emergency has been extended for another month. 216 people have tested positive for the coronavirus, but authorities fear it will escalate in the next two weeks with the return of many Palestinian workers who were previously in Israel.

For the town of Sceaux, the "administrative judge ruled this day (Editor's note: this Thursday) and suspended the order", tells us for his part the prefecture of Hauts-de-Seine. The town hall must also donate 1,500 euros to the Human Rights League.

The mayor of Sceaux has decided to appeal this ordinance before the Council of State in the coming days, the municipality tells us. "This is an extremely negative sign, the government is locking in its initial error of considering that the mask is not useful ," said the city councilor Philippe Laurent (UDI).

"Useless in open places and without close contact"

On the health side, running with a mask in the idea of ​​protecting oneself from the new coronavirus "is useless" as long as one does not come into contact with another individual, considers Anne Goffard, teacher at the Faculty of Pharmacy in Lille. "We do not need a mask to go running in open places and where we are not in close contact", abounds Marie-Paule Kieny, research director of Inserm and former deputy director of the Organization World Health.

Hygiene, masks, jogging ... Here are the local measures to harden the containment

 Hygiene, masks, jogging ... Here are the local measures to harden the containment Some municipalities, responding to the call from the Ministry of the Interior, have started to harden the measures to avoid a potential loosening of the containment. © AFP In several cities in France, mayors are tightening containment measures to avoid loosening of residents. (illustration) From the ban on jogging during the day in Paris, to an anti-sputum order in the North, some cities in France are starting to harden travel restrictions , in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

As a reminder, several studies have reshuffled the cards on the transmission of the coronavirus, claiming that could be transmitted when people speak and breathe, and no longer only when they sneeze or cough. "When we speak, we emit large droplets that fall quickly, and very fine particles that will float in the air for a few hours, explained on Franceinfo Professor Yves Buisson, who coordinates the scientific watch unit on the Covid-19 within the National Academy of Physician. When you walk on the street, there is no risk, because these very fine particles are carried away by air movements. »

Covering the nose and mouth would also risk hindering the runner's breathing and would not be very practical: it is indeed unlikely that a mask will remain in place for the duration of the race, which would constrain the sportsman to readjust it when his hands are not necessarily clean.
