The Malta Union of Teachers, MUT, has expressed its concern about events and activities related to Halloween which will be organised in the coming days. MUT said that it was made aware that people are organising Halloween activities which involve both children and adults who do not live in the same household and will therefore mix with each other during such events.

MUT said that although everyone is trying to reset normality in their lives which were disrupted with the coronavirus pandemic, one should be careful not to increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

The union said that it feels this situation should be tackled immediately as the transmission of the virus appears to be high especially during social gatherings and that these might have negative repercussions on the efforts made by schools to maintain the situation under control.  

MUT appealed for common sense to prevail in these situations and appealed to the authorities to give a direction on the matter.
