One of the old quarter’s most popular tourist attractions will reopen next week.

Closed since mid-March, the Grand Palace will open again to the public starting June 4, the Royal Office announced Monday. It did not say what measures would be imposed on visitors.

Many venues have been allowed to resume business since earlier this month while public health officials have reported single-digit COVID-19 infections for weeks. The official count as of Monday stood at 3,042 infections and 57 deaths since the outbreak began in January.
