The Louvre has reopened its doors after four months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Anyone wanting to visit the museum is required to pre-book a time slot, and during the visit face masks are compulsory and social distancing of at least one meter will be enforced.

Jean-Luc Martinez, the museum director, said the museum was expecting just 7,000 visitors on the reopening day. Before the closure, as many as 50,000 people per day toured the Louvre in the busiest summer months.
