HSH Prince Albert has decided to continue the easing of coronavirus restrictions, the Government said in a press release late on Friday.

The move follows a meeting of the Joint Monitoring Committee involving the National Council on Friday afternoon.

The relaxation comes despite an uptick in infections in recent days, which have largely been the result of private gatherings, the Government said.

A two-track system has been introduced for bars and restaurants. Monaco residents will not need to prove their vaccination status, nor will residents of the Alpes-Maritimes or Imperia. However, clients from outside the region will be required to show a health pass or any equivalent document showing their vaccination status, their negative test result or their certificate of recovery.

The Government added that compliance with health regulations is still required and regular checks on establishments will be carried out.

The curfew in France was lifted more than a week ago.
