(SOUNDBITE) (English) GENERAL MANAGER AT MADAME TUSSAUDS LONDON, TIM WATERS, SAYING: "We’re encouraging guests to wear their face masks when they come into the building. They will be temperature checked as they enter as well. And they’ll be able to see our staff who are wearing face masks as well. We’ve also limited capacity to ensure that we can make sure that there’s social distancing as we go through the attraction. But I think the one thing from my side is that we are opening in a safe, safe manner. And we’re hoping to provide our guests with a real kind of fun and memorable experience.".
