Statement of the Supreme Committee
The Supreme Committee for Dealing with Covid-19 held a meeting this morning to follow up the developments of this pandemic, measures to prevent it and ways to curb its spread.
The Committee examined the noticeable increase in the number of deaths and infected cases, especially among Omani families as a result of the increase of close contact with other infected cases and visits of citizens to each other, according to the results of the epidemiological investigation.
The Committee expresses its concern about this increase, and calls upon all citizens and residents to exercise utmost caution, and to abide by the precautionary measures that can reduce the number of infected and death cases.
Accordingly, the Committee decides to:
– Continue the lockdown of Dhofar Governorate and Wilayat Masirah until further notice.
– Facilitate travel abroad to citizens through the airports, provided that upon return they adhere to the precautionary controls set by the competent authorities or any other controls that will be issued by theses authorities in the future.
