Eiffel Tower, one of the most visited sites in Paris, reopens to the public after being closed for over three months due to COVID-19 lockdown. Visitors will have to take the stairs because the lifts will be off-use due to concerns about infection. There is a one-way tour route in force on the staircases, and all visitors over the age of 11 will be required to wear a face mask. #COVID19
