The Prime Minister, traveling to Metz on Thursday, spoke of the prospects for the culture sector.
Jean Castex gave this Thursday a little hope to the culture sector. Traveling to Metz this Thursday with the Minister of Health Olivier Véran, he assured elected officials: “Those who are on the top of the pile for a possible reopening are the museums.” “This is the difference between the ERP (establishments receiving the public, Editor’s note) circulating and cinemas and theaters which are closed places, where people remain motionless.”
“We must give prospects to the cultural sector. It is heartbreaking,” he added.
Bachelot refuses to give a date
Tuesday, the Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot refused on Tuesday to give a date for the reopening of cultural places, believing that it would be “totally irresponsible” on her part, before the commission of cultural affairs of the National Assembly.
“Museums and historic monuments could be structures which, as part of the stabilization of the epidemic, could be subject to a supervised reopening”, also indicated the minister who consulted museum officials ” ready to rework gauges and operating modes “.
