In a statement published yesterday by the MUT (Malta Union of Teachers), stated that they have received information which indicated that Halloween parties are going to be held this weekend.

They stated that they are concerned that groups of children will be meeting at these parties and gathering where Covid-19 can be easily contracted.

The MUT said that they believe that this situation needs to be addressed because it is clear that the spread of the virus during parties such as this can sabotage all the efforts being made in schools.

The union have appealed to everyone for these activities to be avoided, and is asking for authorities to give clear directives about this.
