Prince Albert II of Monaco announced on Tuesday evening during a televised speech new reforms to curb the spread of coronavirus within the Principality. Following the example of France and neighbouring countries, total isolation has been decreed.
Following the accelerated spread of the coronavirus Covid–19 over the last few days, new sanctions were unveiled by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince on Tuesday evening on Monaco Info. These measures will be applied from this Wednesday midnight, for an indefinite period.
Among the essential points to remember, Prince Albert II has decreed that travel in the Principality should henceforth be limited to the essentials, namely healthcare and food shopping.
All group activities, both inside and outside the Principality, will no longer be tolerated, and building sites will be halted. The State services will ensure that the instructions are correctly respected.
As far as businesses are concerned, they should, as far as possible, offer their employees the possibility of teleworking. The government will work with them to minimise the economic impact of the epidemic. Support measures will soon be announced by the National Council.
At the end of his speech, H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince made it clear that “the way out of this health crisis will depend on your ability to comply with the measures applied.”
