Wearing a face mask will be compulsory in busy parts of Paris from Monday amid a rise in coronavirus infections in and around the French capital.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
Police said the order would apply to people aged 11 and over in "certain very crowded zones".
The virus had been circulating more widely in the region since mid-July, they said. Face masks are already compulsory in enclosed public spaces.
Experts have warned that France could lose control of Covid-19 "at any time".
Several cities, such as Nice and Lille, have introduced their own additional orders making mask-wearing mandatory in certain outdoor areas.
