"From today (July 20), it is compulsory to wear masks in enclosed public spaces, with a possible 135 Euro fine payable for failure to do so.
"These enclosed public spaces include shops and shopping centres, covered markets, banks and other administrative centres; restaurants, bars, hotels and guesthouses; cinemas, theatres, games rooms, other multi-use rooms or conference centres.
"Places of worship; indoor sports centres (except when exercising); museums, libraries and archives; marquees and tents; bus and train stations; “floating establishments” e.g. restaurants on boats, high-altitude restaurants and hotels, mountain refuges, other open air establishments; training or learning centres and holiday centres.
"Additional establishments could also decide to require visitors to wear a mask so it’s worth travelling with one to hand.
"The virus is in circulation and increasing in some areas so you are advised to continue following public health precautions, such as social distancing (staying at least a metre apart and avoiding handshakes and ‘la bise’) and regular hand washing.
"It’s also worth remembering that, since 11 May, wearing masks on public transport is compulsory for all users aged 11 and over, with fines for those who do not comply.
"Masks are also compulsory in taxis and private hire vehicles without a plexiglass screen."
