A Charles III College student and two of his family members have tested positive for Covid-19, prompting a trace and test operation in Monaco.
The Monaco government revealed on Thursday 2nd July that one of the Principality’s young residents had returned a positive test for Covid-19 after being infected by a member of his family who had returned from a trip outside of Europe.
Another member of the same family has also since tested positive.
The student, in 6ème at the Charles III College, and affected members of his family are self-quarantined in their home under the care of the Home Monitoring Centre.
The Health Department is now in the process of contacting and testing 11 classmates and five teachers who have been in contact with the student, although he is believed to have posed a “negligible risk” of contaminating others given the strict hygiene measures in play at the school, including the wearing of masks and social distancing.
“The risk of contamination is therefore very low,” said the government in a statement.
France has said that night clubs will be able to reopen in July, leaving club owners delighted but also concerned about what kind of rules will need to be implemented.
The YCM will host June's Festival of the Sea in honour of the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter, however the event will be scaled back this year due to health restrictions.
A new public use facility called A Fabrica has been inaugurated in the heart of Princess Antoinette Park, a space made possible by the generosity of two local donors.
Masks will no longer be mandatory in Monaco from Saturday, with the exception of a few tourist hotspots like Casino Square.
