At last we can ditch the masks outdoors! There are of course exceptions to the rule; for those watching the changing of the guard, people browsing and shopping in the markets or Fontvieille, or travellers using public transport. Check out the new regulations on the Government's Covid website.

Fewer positive Covid tests have been reported in the past week, but numbers may increase again with the planned testing drive from 21 February when schools reopen. Teleworking remains in place until at least 4 March, as does the requirement for on-site workers to mask up during coffee breaks. As a reminder, vaccine take-up in Monaco is a low 71%, dropping to around 61% for under-55s.

Good news for Monaco's bobsleigh team which finished 6th in the Winter Olympics, a record for the Principality. If you'd like to try a more sedate winter sport there's curling at the ice-rink this evening, 21:00 to 22:30. Two other dates are scheduled: next Tuesday and Thursday, 22 and 24 February, at the same time.

The Karting Club has reopened in Parking des Pecheurs. There are two sessions on the remaining Mondays of February: 17:30-19:00 and 19:00-20:30. For more information phone +33 6 59 55 25 79 and visit the Kart Indoor Monaco site.

Tickets for the Tennis Masters in April are selling out fast. The official list of players is to be announced 14 March, with the draw 8 April. It's unlikely Djokovic will take part, unless he's vaccinated or French regulations change.

Two PDF maps are available for you to download as part of the Government's drive to reduce waste and emissions. One shows where you can donate your old clothes, the other where you can get repairs done on jewellery, clothing, and electrical goods.

And finally...

Better late than never, the British Association is organizing a Valentine's Lunch, 22 February at the Pacific. Members 70 euros, non-members 75 euros. Reservations on bam[at] or 93 50 19 52. Enjoy!
