Health measures in force

Last update: 14/01/2022

Health Pass

As of 17 January, the obligation to present a health pass is extended to any person whose work is indispensable for the continuity of the activity of certain companies or public entities providing essential services to the population. This extension is therefore not aimed at all the salaried staff of public or private entities identified as absolutely essential to the proper functioning of the Principality. It is up to the managers of these entities to define internally the personnel eligible for the extension of the health pass. More information on this measure
