PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron told mayors that unwinding the coronavirus lockdown would not be done region by region, the presidency’s office said on Thursday.

Mayors were also told at a video conference call with Macron that non-professional masks for the public would be recommended but not compulsory, his office added.
