Prince Albert is extending all current health measures until Sunday, May 16, with a few changes this time round. Bars that serve breakfast can open under certain conditions and sports practice will be allowed with strict health protocol in place (see below).
The 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. curfew will remain in effect for another two weeks. Remote working remains compulsory in private and public sectors, and in stores the 4-square-meters per person rule (instead of 6) is back in force.
Wearing a mask remains mandatory without exception, as well as respecting barrier gestures.
Over the pasts month, Monaco’s incidence rate has been reduced by a third to 62.5 per 100,000 people (the week of April 12-18) but last week it rate rose slightly to 86.05.
Hospital admissions continue to improve even if the numbers are high. Seven patients including 3 residents are in hospital with a non-resident being treated in ICU. 27 people are being supervised by the Home Patient Monitoring Center.
13,289 people (35% of the population) have been vaccinated and 11,815 (88.91% those who have had the first injection) have had the second shot. For now, the campaign remains open to people over 45.
