France’s beaches reopen to swimming and fishing in some areas as gov’t tries to restart tourism

As the French government unveiled its “Marshall plan” to save the country’s tourism industry, some beaches across France reopened again to locals, allowing some to swim, fish and sometimes practise sports, though sunbathing is still forbidden. The French are still forbidden to travel further than100km from their homes but locals can now enjoy the coast if they abide to social distancing measures, in order to stem the spread of Covid-19.
