Lockdown has been lifted and tourism in Paris is recovering. Aiming at re-galvanizing the sector badly hit by the health crisis because of the coronavirus epidemic, the Office du Tourisme et des Congrès de Paris (OTCP – Paris Tourism and Congress Office) has worked in partnership with Paris tourism players and the City of Paris to prepare the recovery of the tourism activity in town.
Thanks to this common work, the OTCP launches the “Caring Attitude” Charter encouraging establishments and partners signing up to respect 7 commitments such as setting up health measures, training staff to these measures and adapting services to keep social distancing. With the help of partners already involved, visitors can prepare their stays in Paris safely.

Like main travel companies, such as Air France, Paris Aéroport or even the SNCF, exceptional measures have been made to reinforce safety and health.
