According to the health authorities, no new active COVID-19 cases have been linked to Malta’s Entertainment Mecca Paceville. A spokesperson for the health authorities told newsroom Times of Malta that most recent cases are sporadic, with the newsroom visiting Paceville nightclubs amid reports of owners and partygoers not sticking to pandemic regulations. Revellers allegedly crowded the dance floor and the bar to order drinks, despite regulations forbidding both.
In an attempt to prevent spread of COVID-19, health authorities still have strict rules for bars, nightclubs and such establishments. Deputy President of the Malta Chamber of SMEs Philip Fenech stated that given the high vaccination rate and protocols in place, rules should start to be eased, even if the situation does not return to pre-pandemic conditions. Seeing that no new clusters are linked to such establishments, Fenech argued that we can ‘move to the next step of stability and slowly ease more measures.’
