Speaking at a press conference, Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne announced that persons coming from countries listed as dark red who have a vaccine certificate and are Maltese residents will be able to quarantine in their own homes. This can only happen if all the other residents in the household are fully vaccinated in order to avoid putting others at risk. This will come into effect as of next Friday 17th September 2021.
This comes as the focus shifts from the Delta variant onto the MU variant, which also lead to countries like Russia and India to have their status as dark red countries revisited. Friday will also see the acceptance of the Canadian vaccine certificate, with those travelling with said certificate not needing to quarantine.
