Only those with a vaccine certificate will be permitted to attend.

He said that should the COVID situation remain stable in the coming weeks, seated events within gated venues, meaning events can take place both indoors and outdoors but there must be controlled entrances.

Events cannot have more than one person per four square metres, capped at 100 persons from 5th July. Should the situation remain under control, a fortnight later the cap increases to 150 persons, and 15th August, up to 200 persons.  

For each activity, a risk assessment must be carried out and filed with the health authorities.

Minister Fearne said that the vaccine is the solution to the road of normality and that so far, 57 per cent of all adults in Malta and Gozo have been fully vaccinated.

Superintendent of Public Health Charmaine Galea explained that vaccine certificates will be checked on entry, and event organisers will be given the facility to check certificates through the scanning of a QR code.

Prof Galea reminded organisers that they are responsible for what takes place at their events.

She said that staff at venues will be required to have a vaccine certificate, and that no events can take place as residential properties, even if such properties are available on the rental market.

Smoking will not be permitted inside events, while organisers will be asked to keep a record of all those who attended.

No breaks or intermissions will be permitted, as this could cause persons to mix and increase the risk of transmission.
