Following the announement that from May 16 face masks will no longer be required on public tranportation in France or in airports and on flights in Europe, the Monaco government has announced a mask is no longer mandatory indoors.

Prince Albert made the decision which takes effect from Friday 13 May. Wearing a mask will no longer be necessary for either staff or visitors in shops or other closed places open to the public in the Principality.

Masks must still be worn by all those over the age of 5 at healthcare establishments, as well as on public transport and in taxis. The government recommends wearing a mask in closed spaces for people at risk or during large gatherings.

There were 15 Covid cases confirmed in Monaco on Thursday.
