'Organized beaches' set up in France

A woman sunbathes at Couchant or Sunset beach in a roped-off distancing zone marked out by the municipality along the beaches in La Grande Motte, southern France, on Thursday as the nation eases lockdown measures taken to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the novel coronavirus. The local municipality dubbed this setup "organized beaches", the first in France to implement separated zones for beach-goers in order to respect social distancing.
