Malls in Oman to reopen

Malls in Oman are set to reopen today (Wednesday June 24), it has been announced.

Commercial centres across the Sultanate have been closed for months as part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Malls will welcome customers again as part of the fourth stage of reopening businesses across Oman, but there will be strict rules in place.

Those aged under 12 or over 60 will not be allowed inside, and shops will need to be regularly cleaned. There will also be hand sanitisers outside stores and on the cashier desk.

Mall parking lots will have a 50 percent capacity limit to reduce the number of customers inside.

The news comes after the Omani government allowed almost 50 kinds of stores to reopen earlier this month.

Plus, tourism boats are now allowed to operate throughout the Sultanate.
