Following the announcement by the Health authorities regarding the amendment to the Quarantine protocols, Malta Enterprise will be adapting the Quarantine leave support scheme in order to also cater for the 7-day quarantine period at the rate of €175 and 10-day quarantine period at the rate of €250. In the case of 14-day quarantine periods the assistance shall be retained at €350.
Employers who have or had a member of their staff (including themselves) on mandatory quarantine leave in accordance with the directives of the Superintendent of Public Health are entitled to a one-off lump sum grant of €350.
The grant is also applicable for members of staff who had to quarantine themselves in view of possible contact with individuals who were directly at risk of infection, such as living in the same dwelling or in the same workplace.
This measure only covers grants for full-time employees.
