Faced with the progression of the covid-19 epidemic in the countries bordering the Principality, the Princely Government decided to close all “non-essential” public spaces.
Supermarkets and food markets, pharmacies, tobacconists, newsagents, petrol stations and banks will remain open. All other commercial establishments (including restaurants, casinos, cafés, theatres, cinemas and nightclubs) have to apply this measure from midnight Saturday.
Places of worship will remain open. The Princely Government has called on everyone to respect these measures.
