Bercy will supervise the sale of masks in commerce as part of the deconfinement. This was announced this morning by the Secretary of State to the Minister of the Economy, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, who decided “to cap the price of single-use paper masks of surgical type, which cannot exceed 95 euro cents per mask“, She said on RTL. For fabric masks, there will be no price framework for the moment, but “there will be surveys every week” To be sure “there is no margin drift

On these fabric masks, on the other hand, investigations will be carried out every week, “with price statements, distribution circuit by distribution circuit, and we will ensure that there is no drift in the margins.

She justified the decision not to limit the price of fabric masks by the fact that “the offer is much less homogeneous than that of surgical masks” “You can have cloth masks that can be used once, and others that can be used more than 40 times.

They are “most often washable and reusable
