Monaco goes into lockdown from midnight – bars, cafes close

Share

The Prince’s Government has decided to close at midnight this Saturday, March 14, all public places “not essential to the life of the country.”

“Faced with the progression of the covid-19 epidemic in the countries bordering the Principality, the Prince’s Government, on instructions from HSH the Sovereign Prince, has decided to close at midnight this Saturday March 14, and until further notice, places open to the public that are not essential to the life of the country.

Food stores and markets, pharmacies, tobacco and news outlets, gas stations and banks will remain open. All other commercial establishments – in particular restaurants, casinos, cafes, concert halls, cinemas and nightclubs – will have to observe this measure. Places of worship will remain open.

The Prince’s Government calls on everyone to respect these measures.”

The move came two hours after a similar announcement in France.

      Sorry for the late reply. It depends what work you do. Until Wednesday at the earliest there are no controls on movement in Monaco, but this is likely to change. To travel in France you will need an attestation, which you can downlaod at https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/R55781
