Monaco relaxes some Covid restrictions

Monaco relaxes some Covid restrictions

By Cassandra Tanti - October 11, 2021

Masks are no longer mandatory outdoors in the Principality except in some highly populated areas. The government also announced on Monday that people over 65 are now eligible for a third dose of the Covid vaccine.

The National Council has been asking the government to adjust its mask rule for a number of weeks in light of the low circulation of Covid in the Principality.

On Monday, the government announced that, after consultation with the Joint Monitoring Committee, it will relax some restrictions, but not all of those that were requested by the National Council.

From Tuesday 12th October, masks will only be required at the Place du Palais between 11am and 12:30pm (changing of the guard), the Esplanade of the Fontvieille shopping centre, public transport areas including bus stops and near the train station, and the Condamine and Monte-Carlo markets between 7am and 2pm.

Masks must still be worn in all enclosed public spaces in the Principality.

Also at the request of the National Council, masks are no longer compulsory during physical education and sports classes for all students, both indoors and outdoors. However, masks are still required in primary classrooms. The National Council says it will continue to push to have this mask rule lifted.

Third dose of vaccine

Following a recent announcement by the European Medicines Agency endorsing a third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, the Prince’s Government has now made the inoculation available for citizens and residents aged 65 and over, as well to healthcare professionals who were vaccinated more than six months ago.

The National Council is requesting that the third dose be made available to everyone in Monaco.
