Since the end of June, several new positive cases of coronavirus have been uncovered in the Principality. The Prince’s Government has also clarified further guidelines for sporting activities.


The number of cases in the Principality is on the rise, with 108 people now affected with coronavirus. With two new cases revealed on July 5th, eight people are currently being monitored by the Home Monitoring Centre. The number of recoveries, set at 95, remains unchanged.

Details were also provided on sporting activities and gatherings on the Rock. Groups of more than 10 people on public roads and spaces are prohibited. Nevertheless it was specified that “events involving more than ten people and respecting a maximum capacity of 5,000 people may be authorised from time to time as part of an event’s continued organisation or a standalone event.”

Contact sport remains prohibited

Individual exercise and sport, both indoor or out, is permitted but subject to certain health measures. However, contact sports remain prohibited. Covered sporting establishments, as well as sports associations and federations may return after the Monegasque Department of Health Action validates how well they are keeping up with health measures. This protocol targets in particular plans for cleaning the premises, supplying snacks and food items individually and a ban on sharing personal belongings.
