As part of its plan to test all 90,000 residents and employees in the Principality, the government has released the first schedule for coronavirus testing, which starts Tuesday, May 19.

Families, both Monegasques and residents, with last names beginning with the letters A to F will be tested from May 19 to May 23 (see timetable below).

All family members from the age of 5 will be tested on a voluntary basis at Espace Léo Ferré or Grimaldi Forum, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The serological test, a finger prick that gives the results in 10 minutes, is completely free. A Monegasque or resident identity card is all that is needed. Anyone unable to attend the appointed time slot will need to call 377 92 05 55 00 to organize an alternate date.
