One of the most desired activities when visiting Lourdes is, of course, the baths. Being immersed in the baths is something most pilgrims look forward to. However, as of late December 2022, the baths remain closed for actual immersion, but they have developed an alternative plan.
Here is what they say on their official site:
For health reasons and to respect physical and social distancing, bathing is not possible at the moment. Accompanied by the Hospitallers of Our Lady of Lourdes, the spiritual approach of the gesture of water consists of drinking Lourdes water and washing your face, in this symbolic place of swimming pools, full of stories, prayers and of thanks.
Furthermore, there is this information about the water from the taps at Lourdes:
Located at the bridge next to the arches, these taps have sufficient pressure to allow you to fill any containers that you might want to take back for yourself or your loved ones. Be aware, for those traveling by air, most airlines and countries will not allow you to carry liquids on board. Rules vary, and in many cases a small bottle inside a secure plastic bag may be allowed.
For U.S.A. travelers, 3.4-ounce containers (or smaller) and then placed in one clear, quart-sized bag.
Check with your airline first.
