COVID-19 guidelines for Malta and Gozo’s post-secondary schools and institutes have been published.
For the most part, the guidelines play off of some of the most talked about measures out there, i.e. mask-wearing, social distancing, and contact tracing.
Some of the guidelines in place are as follows:
- Staff members are required to wear a face mask and / or visor at all times when in the presence of others.
- Maximum efforts should be made to maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres between students.
- In the case of sustained community spread of COVID-19, schools may face partial or full closure with learning transferred online
- Students are recommended to wear masks and / or visors at all times, including in their class, with the exception of common areas and whilst on campus
- Schools are enjoined to keep the size of each group of students as small as is feasible
