Monaco to lift health pass, some mask rules

The Principality will drop mandatory masks at schools from 7th March and the health pass entirely one week later as the government further relaxes some of the Principality’s toughest restrictions.

The government announced in a statement on Friday that it will be following France’s lead and relaxing some measures due to the “favourable evolution of the health situation”.

From Monday 7th March, masks are no longer mandatory at school for both students and teachers.

Nightclubs can reopen, and will soon be instructed on specific health rules from the government.

The protocol surrounding contact cases has also been eased. A vaccinated contact case living in the same household as the positive case will no longer be asked to isolate until they obtain a negative test. A self-test is still required on day three, followed by a PCR test on day five or seven.

Personnel working on construction sites will also no longer be required to have a health pass to access sit.

Additionally, from Monday 14th March, Monaco will drop the mandatory health pass for entry into everything except health establishments and aged care homes.

People will also no longer be told to wear masks anywhere outside, however they are still obligatory inside public places.
