It was striking to see the discipline of the folks in Porto. In Portugal at that time it was not obligatory to wear a mask in cafés and restaurants, but everyone did. We never saw anyone without a mask. Not only that, but the masks were worn to cover the mouth and the nose.
Meanwhile the French health committee met yesterday and decided that from now on :
Masks must be worn in shops, cafés, restaurants, concert halls, cinemas, even where the pass sanitaire is scanned.
All adults in France are strongly encouraged to receive a third dose of vaccine from 5 months after their second dose.
However no confinement or curfew is envisaged.
At present it seems that people are responding to this by booking their appointments for vaccination.
