Breakfast Is Back In Monaco As Health Measures Extend To May 16

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.

From Monday May 3, indoor sports can resume:
- those doing sports and coaches must wear masks, the presence of hydroalcoholic gel and a reservation system to regulate the number of athletes present.
- sports clubs will be able to reopen by applying protocols developed by officials and validated by the Department of Health Action.
- for contact or combat sports, only re-athletic training is possible at this time.
- for water sports (where it is not possible to wear a mask) sailing is authorized, as well as solo rowing.

Reopening of bars for breakfast and dinner service extended:
- in the morning, bars can serve breakfast between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. Access is restricted to Monaco residents, employees and hotel guests. Tables will be limited to 6 with a space of 1.5 meters between tables.
- for lunch service between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m, access to restaurants is reserved for Monaco residents, employees, schools and hotel guests. Reservations are required and the number of guests is limited to 6 per table.
- in the evening, only residents and hotel guests can eat at restaurants from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with diners returning home at 10:15 p.m.
