WEAR A MASK, KEEP SMILING!
The Tourist Office ordered 500,000 masks which are made available to resort business partners. Both surgical masks (type 1), as well as washable personalized masks in the colors of the valley are on supply. These Chamonix masks (made in France) will also be on sale at the Tourist Office boutique.
BARRIER MEASURES AND MAINTAINING SOCIAL DISTANCES
In public spaces and in shops, barrier measures (wearing of a mask, distribution of hydro-alcoholic gel, maintaining safety distances, etc.) will be respected.
Small teams of Chamonix ambassadors (comprising of tourist office and community staff) will be out and about in the town to ensure visitors get the very best out of their stay, with up to date information about the tourist offer in the Valley and to remind them of good practices and barrier gestures.
From May 16, a progressive reopening of the iconic Aiguille du Midi cable car and the legendary Montenvers train.
The operating times of these facilities will be based on weather conditions and visitor numbers. To fulfil the expectations of both visitors and staff, access to the lifts and train are accompanied by an unprecedented experimental "health & safety" precautions:
- thermal camera,
- hydro alcoholic gel,
- wearing a mandatory mask during transport phases, and in enclosed waiting areas (the use of personal masks is encouraged),
- specific adaptation of the means of transport (speed, distance, flow, etc.),
- protection and reception protocol for visitors and employees of the site,
- regular disinfection of ski lifts, trains and buildings,
- display of information and instructions to be observed before and during the visit.
