What's new

Oh la la! Two new cases of coronavirus this week. According to Nice Matin both are men, both returning to Monaco from elsewhere. One is a professional tennis player who's been taking part in a competition, the Adria Tour, organized by Novak Djokovic, who also tested positive along with his wife. The couple have not returned to the Principality.

In addition, Nice Matin reports that AS Monaco cancelled a press conference on Monday because some of their employees had recently been in contact with a person who has tested positive. None of the Ligue 1 football team are affected.

So now might be a good time to take advantage of the Covid-19 blood test offered by the government. Espace Leo Ferre is continuing to run the free scheme every Tuesday until 14 July. After that the remaining kits will made available to health professionals.

The series of classical concerts in the Prince's Palace has been cancelled. Refunds are available for those who've already bought a ticket. Phone +377 98 06 28 28 or email atrium[at]opmc.mc for information.

In happier news, the annual festival celebrating St John went ahead on Tuesday, with a bonfire and folk dancing on Place du Palais watched by Prince Albert and his family. Photos are available on the Palace facebook page. Unfortunately the procession from Place des Moulins to Eglise St Charles and the blessing of the sheep didn't take place.

And finally, now the warm weather has arrived, we can look forward to Fort Antoine's program of outdoor events. Don't forget the Open Air Cinema too (check our maBoum website's 7-day rolling guide for details). You'll find links to trailers for this weekend's movies below. Enjoy!
