Minister of state Pierre Dartout announced today a slight easing of some health care measures in Monaco. Stating that while “the overall health situation is improving and that allows for some flexibility, it is necessary to remain cautious.” It was also revealed at the press conference that 100% of patients being treated at the hospital are unvaccinated.
In Monaco, the incidence rate has decreased from 276 at the start of August to 36 today but “as long as the vaccination coverage is not sufficient,” wearing a mask remains compulsory.
For restaurants, the number of guests per table increases from 10 to 12 people and establishments open to the public can now receive 100% capacity (up from 70%). An exemption for the health pass continues for Monegasques and residents who are eating and drinking on terraces, as well as for those under the age of 18.
Concerning the cultural sector, a health pass for artists and staff has been requested in order to align with the French system.
For hairdressers, walk-in appointments are now possible; Jacuzzis can again be switched on for spas.
In sports, and complying with French regulations, those over 12 years and 2 months no longer have to wear a mask for competitions. A Monegasque club or federation can request proof of a health pass which would allow members to remove masks during training and matches. The mask remains compulsory during travel (arrival at the stadium, change rooms and exits). For sports at school, however, mask wearing remains mandatory.
