Oman’s Ministry of Health to provide rooms for those who need it to self isolate

All residents and citizens, including students, arriving in Oman from abroad must self-isolate, the Ministry of Health has reiterated.

The ministry has said that those who do not have suitable conditions for a home quarantine, such as those who share rooms or do not have an en suite, will be provided with institutional isolation.

If you do have the option of self isolating at home, the ministry has urged that you follow strict instructions so you don’t infect anyone else.

Flights in and out of Oman, with the exception of repatriation, air cargo and flights to Musandam, stopped on Sunday (March 29) at noon.

Oman has been taking a number of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in recent weeks.

All shops in the Sultanate, with the exception of grocery stores, clinics and pharmacies, have been closed temporarily.

Public gatherings of any kind, including weddings and funerals, have also been banned until further notice.
