Businesses in the Principality have begun bearing the ‘Monaco Safe’ label, an initiative by the Prince’s government to alert customers to Monaco’s commitment to safety.
Over the next days, signs bearing the ‘Monaco Safe’ logo will be popping up in establishments all over the Principality. These signs have been given to shops, restaurants, hotels, and other public gathering places who have applied for and met the strict rules of compliance set out to receive this status symbol, signifying that they are taking all possible precautions to ensure the health and safety of all who come through their doors.
Welcome Office Chief Laurence Garino delivered the signs to merchants and business operators all over the Principality on Monday 20th July. The recipients were proud to have passed the rigorous test that allowed them to obtain the signs but were equally happy to know that customers and clients will now know they can enter these “safe-haven” establishments with knowledge that their health and well-being is a priority.
The signs are not obligatory and applying for them is free of charge. There is a dedicated teleservice available to assist in processing applicant’s requests in order to process them in the fastest time period possible. In order to obtain permission to use the sign, the establishment must prove they are adhering to the health protocols put out by the government.
