The Supreme Committee has also extended an evening ban on all commercial activities until the end of Ramadan, which is due to start in mid-April this year, said a report in Oman News Agency. Other decisions to curb the spread of Covid-19 include:
The Covid-19 Supreme Committee advises all citizens and residents to avoid travelling abroad during the coming period, except under extreme necessity, bearing in mind that many countries are likely to restrict movement and travel. The Supreme Committee recommends limiting travel for official missions abroad or for participation in external events.
The Supreme Committee will assess and revise these decisions in accordance with developments in the general situation of the pandemic in the Sultanate during the holy month of Ramadan.
The committee also urged private sector companies to implement business continuity plans by working remotely and reducing the number of employees who are required to come to the workplace, similar to reducing the number of employees who are required to attend workplaces in the units of the state’s administrative apparatus and other public legal persons.
