Responding to Wednesday night’s round of anti-COVID-19 transmission measures, The Malta Chamber described them as “necessary”, stressing however the toll it will take on Malta’s “already suffering business community”.

Among the new measures are the closure of non-essential shops and services, gyms, cinemas, the banning of weddings and bans on non-essential travel to Gozo.

In a statement, the Malta Chamber said “these restrictions must be mitigated. The Malta Chamber, as it has always done, shall be constructive in its support to the country’s authorities in this regard.”

“Let’s not allow this great sacrifice to be prejudiced. While the vaccination efforts proceed, lets’ all come together and pull the same rope, in order for the country to come out of this dark patch with the least damage possible.”

The Malta Chamber has reiterated calls for its members and the members of the country’s business community to heighten their vigilance at this time.

“All sanitary and social distancing protocols ought to be observed diligently, while remote working should be encouraged in all cases where this is possible.”
