The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry has called on employers to actively organise work from home where possible.

In a statement, the Chamber said that this comes following a COVID-19 infection spread which seems to be happening at a consistently high rate, also claiming the youngest victim to date on Friday.

In order to avoid further economic restrictions, the Chamber appealed for all employers, especially in the public sector, to actively consider remote working for all their employees who are able to work from home.

The Malta Chamber reiterates and reinforces all calls made by the country’s Health Authorities, to practice all safety protocols related to the covid pandemic, namely social distancing norms, proper use of masks at all times, diligent hygiene routines, and the avoidance of crowded places at all costs.

It also applauded students for setting an example, and showing that where there are strict protocols, which are being adhered to, contagion can be effectively controlled.
