Statement of the Supreme Committee

The Supreme Committee for Dealing with Covid-19 decides:

– Banning all gatherings related to Eid, such as Eid livestock auctions, Eid prayers, Eid greetings’ gatherings and Eid group celebrations because such gatherings can spread the pandemic in the community.

– Authorizing the Royal Oman Police to monitor the compliance of individuals and public and private institutions with the decisions issued by the Supreme Committee, and authorizing them to directly impose the financial fines and remand detention to violators of these decisions.

– Resuming a new group of commercial and industrial activities which shall adhere to the necessary preventive measures. The competent authorities will announce the details of those activities.

– Requiring everyone to wear face masks in public places, including all permitted commercial and industrial activities, workplaces in the public and private sectors and public transportation.

May Allah Almighty protect every one of us.
