This Saturday January 9 is the second Saturday of the sales in the Principality of Monaco. The gap between this period of the sales in Monaco and in France calls for the greatest vigilance. There is a danger of a crowds in car parks, shops or public spaces that could be considered favourable to a spread of the virus.
All of the Principality’s shops will be accessible to outside visitors. At the same time the Princely Government is launching an appeal for responsibility, both for the traders and for the customers they will welcome.
Thus, this Saturday, regulation of incoming road traffic will be carried out by the Public Security at the border and in the station.
