1. Reciprocity :  France and UK border controls
Following the UK government's announcement that, from June 8, a 14-day self-quarantine requirement will be imposed on all passengers arriving in the UK (including train and ferry passengers as well as those arriving by air), the French authorities have confirmed that they will apply similar measure to travellers arriving in France from the UK.   Although the British self-quarantine is reportedly on an "honour" basis, spot checks will be made by Health Service officials.
 
2. Free testing programme – 3% test positive for coronavirus so far
Since the free testing programme for all Monaco nationals and residents began on May 18, just under 3% of those tested have given positive results.   A positive result indicates that the patient has been infected but has not developed any symptoms;  follow-up treatment consists of a further check by a doctor to establish that there is no current evidence of any symptoms.   An appointment for a follow-up test is then made.
The tests, which consist of a simple prick on a finger to obtain a blood sample, continue until June 2 at the Grimaldi Forum and the Espace Léo Ferre.   H.S.H. Prince Albert II Himself made a personal visit to both locations earlier in the week in order to highlight the importance of the test, saying "It is essential that all residents and employees of the Principality come to be tested, not only so that everyone is reassured personally, but also so that we to get a better idea of how the virus spreads.   This will allow us to determine the best way to fight it to slow its progression.   I strongly encourage everyone to take this test."
From June 2, tests will be made available to all employees in the Principality.

 
3. A further distribution programme of free masks
Since the beginning of this week, Monaco residents have been finding a second free packet of 2 masks in their postboxes.
Whilst the wearing of masks in the street is not compulsory, they must be worn at all times in shops and on public transport.
