In the context of the sustained rate of infection currently being experienced in Malta, which is resulting in an unfortunately consistent consequential mortality rate, The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry is compelled to call for utmost care and responsibility by all, no less the country’s employers, in the interest of everyone’s health and wellbeing.
The Malta Chamber notes that though there have been a number of recoveries registered in the past days, the spread seems to be happening at a consistently high rate, also claiming the youngest victim to date on Friday.
In the case of the management of schools, our students have set an example for everyone, that where there are strict protocols, which are being adhered to, contagion can be effectively controlled.
In order to avoid further economic restrictions, The Malta Chamber calls on all employers in Malta to actively consider remote working for all their employees who are able to work from home. Employees should also seriously consider this option. This is especially relevant for the public sector.
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.
Let’s maintain high protection levels in our own interest, and in the interest of our elderly and vulnerable members of our communities.
