    Paris's iconic Louvre museum gears up to reopen

    Jun 25, 2020 12:33 IST

    Come July 6, the world's most-visited museum, the iconic Louvre in Paris will reopen to tourists after four long months of inactivity. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the museum saw 30,000 to 50,000 visitors per day in the summer season. But when it reopens, the museum director expects an 80 percent drop in visitors. Authorities are working on an online reservation-based system and 400-500 visitors will be allowed inside every half-an-hour. The museum will regulate visitor flow with signs that read “sense of visit" in English. Masks will be compulsory for visitors over the age of 11 years.
