  • animation and facilities such as the swimming pool are adapted to government measures.

  • encourage contactless payments
  • implementation and compliance protocols in case of suspected contamination

Wearing a mouth mask is compulsory in the municipalities of Agde, Marseillan, Vias and Portiragnes. Groups larger than 10 people are forbidden.
