Louvre reopens its doors
The Louvre museum in Paris, home to the Mona Lisa, has reopened Monday after the government allowed French museums and historic sites to reopen their doors following the coronavirus shutdown.
Since its closure on March 13, the Louvre has "lost more than 40 million euros", its director Jean-Luc Martinez said.
After the reopening, visitors need to make an online reservation for a visit, use hand disinfectant at the entrance, have temperatures taken before entering, and visitors above 11 years old must wear masks during visitation.
In addition, the museum only accepts payment by card, not cash. Fast food and locker services are temporarily closed.
Positions have been marked in front of the Mona Lisa - where tourists routinely pose for selfies - to ensure social distancing.
