Monaco’s police officers will be out in force this Easter holiday period ensuring residents are maintaining strict confinement measures.

Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus crisis, lockdown measures are in place in Monaco until at least 3rd May.
To ensure people don’t flout the rules, the government has issued a warning to residents, saying police numbers in Monaco will be boosted over the holiday period, adding that “containment measures must be observed more than ever.”
