Beach lovers in France take advantage of the sun in individual demarcated areas created to maintain social distancing measures against the coronavirus

FRENCH sun worshipers have absorbed a few rays in the areas of social distancing roped on the beaches of France today in the last sign of what the next summer tainted with coronavirus will look like.

Bathers cooked in the 26 ° C sun at La Grande Motte today, where visitors can book a three and a half hour slot by the sea. The 66 available private spaces were booked in less than two hours during of their first offer with people wanting to return to the beach after a two month lockout.

Bathers are allowed to swim in the sea, but authorities have imposed a one-way system to keep people from crossing paths as much as possible. The beach spots for two, four or six people are delimited by adhesive tape and arranged so that people come into contact as little as possible.

Bathers can keep their places from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., with a 90-minute break between the two sessions. The system was introduced on an “experimental basis” and will operate until June 2 at least.

The website for reservations said: “We don’t claim to have found the perfect solution for beach lovers, but simply to test a model that allows you to put down your towel for sunbathing with maximum health protection. “

La Grande Motte is in one of the regions with low infection rates in France, a green area where people have been allowed to return to the beach since Monday. Local officials had reopened some beaches in northern France and the Mediterranean coast on Saturday.
