Keep your distance
There will be use of ground markings whilst queuing for lifts. Similar to those you will have become used to seeing at home, in places such as supermarkets and retail shops.
Wear a mask
Anyone over the age of 11 will be required to wear a mask when riding ski lifts as well as, whilst queuing for them. As in most places, you will also be required to wear a mask when on public transport, in taxis, shops and whilst away from your table in restaurants and bars.
Restaurants in Meribel have been thriving throughout the busy summer season and are ready and waiting to welcome their winter visitors. At present in France, there are no restrictions regarding group size within restaurants, nor is any pre-booking needed.
Public areas will be cleaned regularly, and hand sanitising gel will be available throughout resort.
