Reducing movement, as well as complying with social distancing rules, is one of the most effective measures in limiting the spread of the virus. It is now time to apply this measure everywhere, in all circumstances.
Restrictions on movement and the full range of preventive measures are the only way to limit the spread of the virus. This means that we have to make changes to the way we live our daily lives: how we go out, how we shop, how we conduct our social lives, and how we look after and educate our children…
The probability that an infected person will infect the other people in their household is very high.
Toutefois, vous pouvez prendre des précautions en adoptant les gestes barrière valables ailleurs :
However, there are precautions you can take by adopting barrier measures valid elsewhere:
- wash your hands
- cough into your elbow
- clean the most regularly used surfaces
If you strongly suspect an infection, do not share meals and use different bathrooms if you can.
Weddings can be held at City Hall with a maximum of 15 people in attendance (including the couple, witnesses and relatives).
Marriage files can only be drawn up by appointment (Phone: 93 15 28 66).
This is not recommended but is not forbidden. It is therefore essential to respect barrier gestures.
Moreover, all gatherings of more than five people remain prohibited in the public space or at home.

It is important to distinguish between private sites and public sites (for work commissioned by the State). In the case of public construction sites, the State, as project owner, took the decision to halt all except one, the Larvotto beach site. As for private construction sites, it is solely up to the relevant project owners to assume responsibility. The role of the State under these exceptional circumstances is limited to making sure that strict health rules are adhered to.
Further details of these measures are available on Service Public for Businesses website.
Larvotto is the only public construction site that the Prince’s Government has decided to keep running, at a reduced level of activity. This has been done on public interest grounds, to enable Monegasque nationals and residents to have access to 100% of the beach this year, and to ensure full completion of the resort area, including the shops, by summer 2021.
The Government is imposing very strict health conditions on the contractor: the number of employees on site has been limited, and each worker has their temperature taken morning and evening. Meals are taken on site, with stringent rules surrounding distribution. Finally, an inspector is present on site at all times, with expanded authority to take action up to and including calling a halt to work in the event of a failure to comply with the health rules.
Any formal prohibition on private construction sites would expose the State to significant financial consequences. The various operators could seek compensation from the State. The sums involved would be considerable, and the Government cannot and will not take this risk, particularly at a time when the public finances are under pressure to limit the economic impact of the health crisis. These sites are also subject to clear health rules. Monitoring is in place and will be strengthened further.
Further details of these measures are available on Public Service for Businesses website.
A mutual aid group has been set up on Facebook for Monaco residents during the lockdown period.
The aim of the group is to make it easier for Monegasque residents to help each other during the mandatory lockdown.
