Caritas Malta announced that due to Curia closure, Caritas cannot continue to offer its services from its offices in Floriana. However, Caritas Malta said that their team of professionals will continue providing their services to those who need it through e-mails, telephone calls and webcams where necessary.

As from 14 March, all Curia offices were closed. The offices which will be closed for the public include the Marriage Office, the Caritas Central Office and the Ecclesiastical Tribunals.

The Archdiocese said that this was being done as a precautionary measure to safeguard the health and security of the general public as well as its employees due to the ongoing situation.
