open for business again but
the virus has not
It could still come back. Campsites, like other accommodation providers
in France, are bound by strict
social distancing rules in order to prevent a resurgence, but there is
zero-risk. Still overall, the smaller the campsites, the less people
there will be, so the lower the risks will be too. Besides, smaller
campsites, particularly those that
are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain
virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. With mostly
between 6 and 60 pitches, many of the
campsites listed on Rural Camping France are in rural locations
where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.
