A sanitary situation under control

30 June 2020 - 15h18

The twelfth meeting of the covid 19 joint monitoring committee was held yesterday at the Department of State. Among the subjects, the health situation and the relaxation of measures in certain cases.

The government and the National Council discussed the evolution of the health situation in the Principality. If, in recent days, a few cases positive for covid 19 have been revealed, the health situation remains satisfactory. It was specified that the last contaminations were all contracted outside the Principality. This confirms that the circulation of the virus remains under control in Monaco. Currently, there is no longer any hospitalized patient in connection with covid 19 at the CHPG. The delegation from the National Council also raised the question of authorizing the temporary exit of elderly people staying in nursing homes. This matter will be examined by government departments. An update was also made on the controls which continue mainly in bars, restaurants and hotels. Overall, the rules are well respected.

Flexibility proposals

“These positive parametres make it possible to envisage a relaxation of the deconfinement systems in restaurants and in terms of the musical atmosphere under conditions which will be specified later.” This relaxation corresponds to an expectation of the National Council to support the recovery. Finally, discussions took place on the economic impact of the health crisis. The government gave information to the National Council on the “progressive, spread and sectoral” backflow mechanism of the CTTR (Chômage Total Temporaire Renforcé) which was to be announced as well as on the measures for partial coverage of social charges and aid certain companies under the aegis of CARE (Commission for Accompanying Economic Recovery). The next joint monitoring committee will meet on July 15th, 2020.
