Person breaches mandatory quarantine twice

In an update about the coronavirus, the Government reported that it has carried out over 480 inspections on those who are meant to be on quarantine. In the last 24 hours, 346 inspections have been carried out in Malta and 37 inspections were carried out in Gozo. In total, 21 fines have been issued to those who have not observed the mandatory quarantine.

No food or beverage establishment was found to be open during the MTA inspections which were carried out to ensure the containment of the coronavirus spread.

In the recent hours, more than 360 inspections were carried out in various localities across Malta and Gozo. In total, 2,200 inspections have been carried out to date.

The Government’s appeal remains the same: no food or beverage establishment should open until further notice. Moreover, the public should not gather in crowds at take-away establishments and everyone should make sure that they keep the necessary distance as instructed by the authorities.

In the meantime, although national musems and Heritage Malta sites are physically closed, they are still accessible virtually through their website Google Arts & Culture –
