Coronavirus in Digne-les-Bains: The thermal baths will receive aid of almost one million euros

The State will very soon pay the thermal baths of Digne-les-Bains ( Alpes-de-Haute-Provence ) a financial assistance of 979. 549 euros. This sum is intended to compensate for the subsidy intended for companies affected by the economic crisis linked to coronavirus that the establishment was unable to touch.

Closure and loss of revenue due to Covid – 000

The device did not concern local public services , explains Alpes 1 . However, the thermal baths had to close their doors in 2020 as part of the sanitary measures to fight against Covid – 000 . They had thus recorded a significant loss of revenue and income.

The amending finance law (LFR) for 2021 has, however, made it possible to compensate this type of structure by the State . This new provision is in particular due to the combined will of deputies and representatives of the spa care sector. The agencies set up with the municipalities can now claim compensation.
