Projection Merci sur la tour Eiffel

Covid-19: The Eiffel Tower recognizes all the people who are mobilized

Since March 27th, messages of thanks and encouragement to stay home are projected onto the Eiffel Tower every evening, in addition to the prolonged sparkling lights.

Every evening at 8 p.m. (until May 11th), the City of Paris and the Eiffel Tower pay homage to all the professionals who are mobilized to help us face this unprecedented global crisis, the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic: healthcare workers, policemen, gendarmes, firefighters, civil servants, first-aid workers, paramedics, soldiers, cashiers, garbage collectors, shopkeepers, delivery employees, volunteers, caregivers, associations and Parisians.

At 8 p.m., the Eiffel Tower sparkles for an extra 10 minutes, and the message "Merci" (Thank you) is displayed on the Eiffel Tower (Trocadéro side) as a tribute to the healthcare workers, policemen, gendarmes, firefighters, civil servants, first-aid workers, paramedics, soldiers, cashiers, garbage collectors, shopkeepers, delivery employees, volunteers, caregivers, associations and Parisians, who are mobilized against Covid-19.
Then, from 8:30 to 11:00 p.m., two alternating messages, in French and English, remind people to keep movements outside their homes to the bare minimum because confinement measures save lives: 
•  "Restez chez vous" 
•  "Stay at home"

These illuminations are displayed every evening, and are controlled remotely.
