COVID-19 Supreme Committee Decision of 29 March 2022

Arabic Download

Note: The following text is a public domain translation published by the Official OmanVsCovid19 Twitter account.

Statement of the Supreme Committee

As part of its ongoing convening, the Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments resulting from coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic followed up recent updates about the pandemic and reviewed means of protection against the disease and ways to curb the spread of the virus.

Upon the advent of the holy month of Ramadan, Covid-19 Supreme Committee took the opportunity to greet His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik, Omani citizens and residents in the Sultanate of Oman, as well as the Arab people and Islamic nation. The panel wished all good health and abundant bounties and blessings.

The Supreme Committee studied the epidemiological situation in the local front and international arena. It noted the decline in cases of infection and hospitalization in the Sultanate of Oman at a time the rates of Covid-19 infections are again picking up in some countries of the world.

As the pandemic persists worldwide upon the approach of the holy month of Ramadan and, in realization of Islam’s edicts calling for safeguarding human life and, to maintain the gains made over the past period, Covid-19 Supreme Committee took the following decisions which, it said, have to be endorsed throughout Ramadan:

– First: Attendance at Taraweeh congregational prays has to be exclusively limited to worshippers who received two-dose vaccination against Covid-19. Unvaccinated people, including children aged below 12 years, are prohibited to enter the mosques during the said period.

– Second: Mass gatherings for charity breakfast meals (Iftar Sa’im) continue to be banned in mosques and other public places, including tents and public assembly halls. Charity teams and private establishments concerned, including civil society institutions, may distribute the meals to target beneficiaries, but without organising gatherings.

– Third: All members of the public have to continue observing precautionary protective measures, including wearing face masks and maintaining physical distance in closed areas, including mosques.

Covid-19 Supreme Committee also underscores the need to continue operation of collective activity venues—like halls, conference places, local and international exhibitions and other mass activity areas—to a maximum of 70% capacity of the said venues.

In the meantime, the committee urged all those who feel any symptoms of Covid-19 infection to avoid attending congregational prayers or entering public gathering areas, to help protect themselves and their society.

The panel also advised Omani citizens and residents in Oman to take the Covid-19 booster dose as soon as possible, notably those whose second dose vaccination lasted more than 6 months. It added that the booster dose would bolster individual and communal immunity.
