Measures to lift the lockdown

Measures to lift the lockdown

Last update: 12/06/2020

With the Prince’s Government having assessed the development of the health situation as satisfactory, business will resume in several sectors of the economy on 2 June, provided that barrier measures and physical distancing are implemented.

However, the rules of social distancing and preventive measures are still in force.

It is recommended to continue to restrict travel to the maximum extent possible, in particular for vulnerable persons.

Wearing a mask during each outing is strongly recommended.

Moreover, all gatherings of more than five people remain prohibited in the public space or at home.

  • In restaurants:
    • Staff will need to wear masks, but this will not apply to customers
    • Booking is recommended
    • Tables will be limited to 10 people (maximum), and there must be a distance of  50 cm between people and 1.5 m or a physical separator (Plexiglas) between tables
    • Menus must be available digitally on smartphones
    • Individual condiments must be provided for each table to limit physical contact
    • Ambient music will need to be at a moderate level so that people do not have to raise their voices, thus limiting respiratory droplets
    • Valet services will be permitted provided that contact surfaces are disinfected every time
  • In bars:
    • Customers will compulsorily need to be seated
    • Tables will be limited to a maximum of 10 people
    • Ambient music will need to be at a moderate level so that people do not have to raise their voices, thus limiting respiratory droplets
  • Museums and exhibition halls with one constraint: access and visitor flow must be regulated using a one-way route around the exhibits
  • Beaches and sun decks, these are currently accessible for active use; sunbathing will be allowed but there must be a distance of 1.5 m between towels and sun loungers, including those used by members of the same family
  • Some arts activities with reduced capacity, such as the Fort Antoine performances and the concerts at the Palace
  • Casinos and gaming rooms, which will need to take every second slot machine out of service to comply with distancing rules and introduce separators at gaming tables, as well as systematic cleaning of dice and tokens
  • Convention centres, provided that they comply with sterilisation rules
  • Individual sports, including competitive swimming. Team and contact sports, on the other hand, will require a specific approach for each discipline
