February saw Malta’s COVID-19 restrictions tighten, with the closure of bars extended to the end of the month, an 11pm curfew on restaurants and a limit on the number of people allowed to gather at holiday accommodation.

As a result, over 6,000 inspections took place across commercial establishments and accommodation in Malta and Gozo in the first two weeks of February.

In Malta 1,885 inspections took place over the Carnival period – from 11-14th February- with two establishments found to be in breach of the 11pm curfew, while a third establishment is being investigated by the police.

During the same period, 802 of 1,255 MTA licensed accommodation in Gozo were inspected, translating into 65 per cent of licensed accommodation on the island. Nobody was caught in breach of the tightened regulations.

A total of 475 inspections at restaurants and snack bars in Gozo also took place during the Carnival period, where nobody was found in breach of the regulations.
