What's new

Congratulations to Sebastien Ogier who won his eighth Monte Carlo Rally last weekend!

As expected, on Tuesday the Government issued a press release extending the duration of current measures to contain Covid. The curfew and restaurant restrictions now remain in place until 19 February.

In France, health minister Olivier Veran announced that homemade and lower quality manufactured masks should not be used as they don't provide sufficient protection against airborne Covid particles. If, like us, you're using Monaco produced Bettimasks, don't worry., These are Category 1, which filter 95% of 3-micrometre particles, compared to 70% in the lower Category 2.

In brief

Last week British newspaper The Guardian reported that Cannes Film Festival will be postponed until July.

According to Nice Matin a sea shuttle service for commuters from Nice is being considered to reduce road traffic. If it goes ahead, workers will disembark in Cap d"ail rather than the Principality.

Nice Matin also reported that Steak’n’Shake was forced to close for non-compliance with Covid regulations: a kitchen worker without a mask, tables and queues too close together, and service outside authorised opening hours.

And finally...

A few days later than originally advertised, the British Association and Club Vivanova celebrate the Scottish bard Rabbie Burns on Saturday. Due to Covid restrictions, supper is replaced by lunch so you won't be heading home in the dark. Still, it's sensible to heed Burns's warning:

    Whene'er to drink you are inclin'd,
    Or cutty-sarks run in your mind,
    Think! ye may buy joys o'er dear -
    Remember Tam o' Shanter's mare.

Enjoy!

What's in the diary...


Thursday: Thais.
