Oman bans more than two people travelling per taxi

Oman has banned taxi drivers from picking up more than two passengers until further notice, the Ministry of Transport has announced.

The restriction, which came into effect today, is being enforced to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Sultanate.

It is one of a number of precautionary measures announced in recent weeks.

As of March 19, all public transport, including buses, ferries, and vans, has been suspended.

Shops in Oman, with the exception of grocery stores, pharmacies, clinics and petrol stations, have all been closed until further notice.

Public gatherings of any kind, including on beaches, parks and in markets, have also been banned.
