In view of the very rapid development of the spread of Covid-19, Prince Albert II of Monaco has extended the obligation to provide a health card to anyone whose work is necessary for the continued activity of some companies or public bodies that provide services to the population.
It also decided to change some medical devices, including the isolation period protocol. These decisions come based on the proposals of his government, which was formed in consultation with the National Council.
From January 17, people whose work is considered essential to the business continuity of some companies or public bodies that provide essential services to the emirate will have to submit a green card. This is the case, in particular, in various departments, telecommunications, energy and water suppliers, and even the banking sector, to name a few.
