The rapid spread of coronavirus has forced hundreds of people into quarantine. As a result of this, there is no doubt that business operations have been affected. In light of this, the government has announced the following incentives for eligible businesses:
- €350 grant to employers for each full-time employee on Quarantine leave.
- The Wage Supplement Scheme has been extended up to June 2021, after which it will be reduced gradually before ending in December 2021, subject to any amendments issued by the Government of Malta.
- The grant is also applicable for staff who had to quarantine themselves in view of possible contact with individuals directly at risk of infection, such as living in the same dwelling or in the same workplace.
