HEADLINES

Government wishes to facilitate the supply of masks to employers: The government has decided to make its supply channels available to all employers in the Principality. The latter can thus purchase alternative masks at cost price, i.e. 1€ excluding tax (VAT 5.5%). Distribution operations have already begun through employers’ organisations.

The government will launch a new website, where all interested employers will simply have to fill in a form and specify the quantity of masks required. An appointment slot will then be proposed to enable all employees to come and collect the masks.

Distribution of masks to all residents aged between 16 and 65: Distribution is being carried out by the services of La Poste in a progressive manner and should be completed by Thursday 30 April, according to the Mairie de Monaco.  If you do not receive the masks, please be patient and do not go to the Mairie before this date. The Mairie has already delivered masks to all OAPs resident in the Principality.
