In view of the new restrictions announced on Thursday, The Malta Chamber calls on all the business community to provide remote working options to their employees when possible. Only those workers who have no other option but to work on-site should be asked to do so. The Malta Chamber reiterates its plea to all for a greater sense of responsibility.
“Our journey has reached a very delicate juncture, as our country is seeking to overcome the recent spike of cases of infections while heightening its vaccination efforts,” said Perit David Xuereb, President of the Malta Chamber.
“We must remain vigilant. The record-breaking figures we experienced this week have been a stark realisation that the race has not been won, and we still have a long way ahead of us. We must not let the encouraging results achieved by our advanced vaccination efforts give us false hope. This mistake could have tragic consequences” Xuereb said.
The Malta Chamber urged the business community at large to do their part by strictly observing the mitigation measures in the workplace.
The Malta Chamber also called for stronger enforcement efforts, in the context of the demonstrably more aggressive variants, which are spreading the virus wider and quicker. The Chamber believes that if we all join forces we can lead the way to recovery. Every effort, no matter how small, can have a significant impact.
