Elderly or vulnerable person

Last update: 03/06/2020

Since the coronavirus may have more serious consequences for the elderly and more vulnerable, it is essential that people in these groups are particularly vigilant in complying with the instructions.

Monaco Town Hall and Monegasque retailers have put specific actions in place to improve quality of life for the duration of measures to control the coronavirus.

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.

You can check out the offers of assistance or add new ones via the following website: https://www.aides-monaco.info

The health authorities have noted that nearly half of all infections occur at large family parties. It is therefore strongly recommended to avoid big gatherings of friends or family, adhering to a maximum of six people and visiting only when absolutely necessary for health reasons or to provide assistance.

There is no evidence that pets play a role in spreading the COVID-19 virus.

However, some cases of domestic animals (dogs, cats and even tigers from New York City Zoo) carrying the COVID-19 virus have been observed.

Therefore, we would suggest that you increase your usual precautions around your pet (wash your hands regularly when looking after your pet, avoid allowing your pet to lick your face, etc.).

If necessary, you can contact your veterinarian, who will be able to assess whether an appointment is necessary.

Furthermore, if you are infected with COVID-19, it is best to keep away from your pet while you are a vector of the virus.

In addition to the mandatory wearing of masks, a number of measures are in place to make this as safe as possible from a health point of view. These include:

  • Maintenance of a safe distance of 1 m from others
  • Maximum capacity of one person per 4 m2 (in shops open to the public, including employees)
  • In healthcare practices, hairdressing salons, etc., access will be managed using an appointment system
  • Introduction of directional floor signage in shops and markings to avoid queues at tills
  • Ventilation of shops
