Every commercial bar in Malta will get €2,700 to combat government-enforced closures and restrictions amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an announcement today by Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo, it was also revealed that bars within każini will receive €1,860. Każini, excluding the political party clubs, can also apply.
The funds cover the entire period of closure from December to February. Submissions are open till 15th February. Applicants can visit the Malta Tourism Authority website, under the latest news tab, to enquire further.
Bars and każini will remain closed until the end of February, while snack bars will remain under strict restrictions where they will be unable to sell alcohol.
Bars were forced to close their doors at the beginning of November following a rise in COVID-19 cases, in a legal notice that was set to expire on Thursday 1st December. The legal directive was extended to February after cases continued to rise.
Restaurants will need to close by 11pm.
