The surveillance cameras will now be able to monitor that you are well carrying your mask in the metro, the train or the bus, according to a decree published Thursday March 11 in the Official Journal.

This video surveillance, authorized for a year, aims to make it possible to establish "statistical assessments" on wearing the mask and to adapt, if necessary, the information and awareness actions of the public.

Finally, the decree specifies that the exploitation of data "relates only to the number of people detected and the percentage of these people who wear a mask".No data likely to identify the filmed persons should be harvested.
