In a statement, the world's most visited museum said that faced with the "legitimate concerns" over the spread of Covid-19 it had agreed to take "extra measures" to ensure the safety of both employees and visitors.

Staff had refused to work on Sunday and Monday, citing a threat to their health. The museum is closed to the public on Tuesdays.
