The Monaco Government announced on Thursday, December 30, that working from home will be compulsory for all positions that allow it until January 31, 2022.

Public administration will follow the requirement while maintaining customer services, the Government said in a press release.

In a further move to reduce the risk of infections, masks must be worn at all times in the working environment, including during work breaks.

The Government said: “The objective is to limit the spread of the virus, by reducing the flow of people in the Principality, as well as interactions in the professional sphere, while maintaining economic activity.”
