Curfew In Monaco Pushed To 8, Schools Remain Open But Holiday Dates To Be Decided Tomorrow

Update May 3: French schools in Monaco have changed their holiday dates from April 22 and will now begin after class Friday April 9 with children returning on Monday April 26. Next week and the week of April 26 all students will attend school in person. 
 

Prince Albert has decided to extend Monaco’s curfew by one hour. From April 3, curfew will begin at 8 p.m. and continue to 6 a.m., as has been the case since January 11. This new measure is the result of a progressive vaccination campaign in the Principality where more than 11,500 people—some 30% of the population—have been vaccinated.

Regarding schools, all schools in Monaco will remain open and will provide in-class lessons next week. The schools will only close for two weeks of holidays, and these dates will be determined tomorrow after the minister of interior meets with school officials, teachers and parents’ associations to determine the best possible option.

Either Monaco schools will take the same holidays as Nice and the rest of France, from April 12 to 23, and then have students back in school in person from April 26.

Or Monaco maintains its scheduled spring holidays from April 23 to May 7, which would mean students attend school in person until and including April 22 and then return on May 10.

Working from home in both the private and public sectors remains mandatory to reduce the influx of people from outside the Principality while maintaining economic activity.

Rules for restaurants remain unchanged: lunch service from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with access reserved for Monaco residents, employees and students. Reservations are required and the number of guests is limited to 6 per table.

Over the last two months, the incidence rate in Monaco has been reduced by half and hospital figures are improving even though the number of patients remain high.
