Abstract: Tourism is traditionally Malta's largest sector. It was also one of the sectors which was hardest hit by COVID-19. Incoming tourist numbers have dropped substantially, resulting in many workers being left inactive, supported only by the COVID-19 Wage Supplement. Whilst an initial partial lockdown kept the number of COVID-19 infections low and manageable, infection numbers have soared as the economy re-opened. Public Health's COVID-19 Track and Trace team has subsequently been overwhelmed by the deluge of cases. It was consequently announced that idle tourism workers were invited to join the Track and Trace team.
