No more masks indoors

No more masks indoors

By Cassandra Tanti - May 13, 2022

Masks are no longer mandatory inside public venues in Monaco for both staff and customers, the government has announced. However the rule has not been dropped in all circumstances.

“Given the evolution of the health situation, which confirms a contained circulation of the virus, the Sovereign Prince, on the proposal of His Government, has decided to lift the obligation to wear a mask indoors from Friday 13th May,” said the government in a press release late Thursday.

It means that masks are no longer required to be worn by both staff and visitors in stores, restaurants, and other enclosed spaces that are open to the public.

The move has been welcomed by the National Council, which said in a statement: “The lifting of this restrictive measure meets the expectations of the population that are regularly relayed by elected officials and is justified by a clear general improvement and sustainability of the health situation… Covid-19 has now moved to a stage that no longer requires the same level of binding health measures. Of course, everyone will have to continue to demonstrate individual responsibility and common sense.”

The Monaco government has stopped short of dropping the mask requirement on public transport and taxis for anyone over the age of five, which France will do from Monday 13th May.

It also “strongly recommends” that high-risk people continue to mask-up at indoor places or during large gatherings.
