The Principality's health authorities were informed this Monday morning that analysis of a sample taken yesterday were positive for COVID 19. This patient is H.E. the Minister of State.
Serge Telle, who is not very symptomatic, remains confined to his home as part of the treatment protocol adopted by the Monegasque authorities with the establishment of medical follow-up coordinated by the CHPG. The Minister of State’s state of health is not cause for concern. Serge Telle pursues his professional activities from his home, avoiding all contact. The working meetings with all members of the Government will now be held by video conference. An epidemiological investigation is underway in order to find out the movements made by the Minister of State over the past few days and identify the people with whom he is said to have been in contact. The press conference scheduled for today at 5.30 pm is maintained. However, in order not to favor the gatherings of many people, from today, the press conferences of the Prince's Government will be held by video conference. The technical details will be communicated to the newsrooms during the day. The Prince's Government thanks journalists for their understanding of these changes in work habits dictated by exceptional circumstances.
