The British Government is preparing to give the go ahead for museums to reopen next month. This will presumably happen as of the 4th July, which some here have dubbed 'Super Saturday'. It seems that social distancing will be enforced although there are rumours that restrictions might soon be relaxed in this regard too.

I spotted this photograph on Twitter this morning (posted by @yjaegle) showing the labyrinth constructed in the Louvre to manage the socially distanced visitor flow in front of the Mona Lisa. Very few renaissance masters were capable of conjuring such visions of man-made hell, but, it seems that this is the price art lovers will have to pay for now.
