With further easing of Covid restrictions the Government continues to urge caution. The Delta variant has been detected in the region, and recent cases are nearly all from private gatherings where distancing and other measures weren't applied.

And finally...

Monaco Safe Pass should be available next week. It can be used in France and the Principality to show you're fully vaccinated, have had a negative PCR test, or have recovered from Covid. If you need to travel further afield, it can be converted to cover all countries of the EU. Enjoy!
