Specific measures concerning cultural activities and congress-related activities

  • Limit the maximum number of clients allowed in the establishment to one person per 4 m², including staff
  • Put a transparent protective screen in place, or, if this measure is impractical, equip staff with a visor in addition to a mask for operations at checkouts and all customer activities where this is possible
  • Encourage the sale of dematerialised tickets to allow greater fluidity and purchase in advance
  • Make disposable equipment available to visitors (blankets, audio-guides, translation headsets, microphones etc.). If this is not possible, clean and disinfect this equipment after each use. If possible, use smartphone-compatible apps for guided tours 
  • Ensure that a member of staff is present in front of points of attraction, to avoid the formation of groups
  • Limit the number of free activities for visitors and film screening rooms for the use of visitors to avoid the formation of crowds, and set them out in such a way as to respect social distancing and hygiene rules
  • For all cultural activities, limit the number of spectators present at any one time in order to comply with social distancing of one-and-a-half metres (1.50 m) between each person
  • Make changes to the layout to comply with social distancing of one-and-a-half metres (1.5 m) between people or between each group of fewer than ten people attending together or who have booked together (or space apart by one seat) and stagger seating of audience members on the adjacent rows
  • After each screening, clean and disinfect equipment, items and surfaces likely to have come into contact with people’s hands (chairs, armrests, handrails, booster cushions, etc.)
  • Limit movement during intermission
  • Organise exit from the hall or screen in a way that prevents crowds from forming
