MUSCAT (Arab News) – Muscat has allowed the resumption of commercial activities after the national task force handling the coronavirus pandemic in Oman has lifted the ban on movement of residents and vehicles.
However public health protocols remain in place, including a limited customer capacity inside business, a continued closure of gyms and sports clubs as well as delivery-only operations after 8:00 pm.
All commercial activities and shops after 8:00 pm will operate without the entry of customers, while delivery and handling system is allowed. Customers can enter food stores throughout the day, while shopping malls, restaurants, shops, and cafes are allowed 50 percent of customers until 8 pm, a report from daily Times of Oman said.
Children below the age of twelve are not allowed entry into business establishments, the report added.
Oman’s Supreme Committee earlier issued new directives, effective May 15, which lifted movement restrictions, barred in-store customers between 8 pm until 4 am and resumption of work in all government offices albeit in a 50 percent worker capacity.
