Oman residents must now wear face masks in public

Oman residents and citizens must now wear a face mask any time they are in public, it has been announced.

The Supreme Committee tasked with tackling the developments of coronavirus (COVID-19) made the decision yesterday (May 18).

Face masks will need to be worn in all public places, including reopened businesses, workplaces and onboard public transport.

You’ll also need to wear a facemask when picking up your groceries.

The Supreme Committee has announced a number of restrictions in recent weeks, all aimed at curbing the spread of the virus.

This includes the lockdown of the governorate of Muscat from April 10 until May 29, and the temporary closure of shops.

Ramadan gatherings across Oman have also been restricted.
