The Louvre Museum Reopens to Public

The Louvre Museum, which had been closed since March 13, reopened to the public on July 6th. The museum established a new set of health and safety protocols to keep visitors’ safety and to prevent the spread of the virus, according to The Agence France-Presse.

 The guests at the Louvre Museum are required to wear masks at all times, book reservations ahead of time to limit the number of visitors, follow a guide, and more. Around 70% of the Louvre is accessible to visitors again. The Louvre Museum saw 9.6 million visitors in 2019, with about 50,000 people entering the facility per day. Officials will now limit entries to about 7,000 per day.

 Tour operators faced financial hardship 

Monday may have been the much-awaited reopening of the historic art museum. However, several tour operators protested outside the Louvre for more government support during the coronavirus crisis and its impact on the travel industry reports Reuters.

France brought in around $19 billion into its tourism sector in May. Tour guides on short-term contracts were still facing imminent financial hardship as the funds were not reaching the people within the industry who need it most.
