Breaking: Supreme Committee lifts all precautionary measures

Muscat: As part of its ongoing convening, the Supreme Committee tasked with tackling developments resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has followed up updates on the disease and means of protection against the virus measures to curb its spread.

The Committee noted that data and statistics about cases of infection, patients admitted to hospital wards and intensive care units (ICUs) point to a gradual decline in the pandemic’s curve and, accordingly, decided the following:

First: All precautionary measures against COVID-19 in all public places and business outlets are deemed terminated.

Second: Members of the society are advised to espouse a “culture of health and protection” in all respects.

Third: In the event someone experiences fever or any morbid respiratory symptoms, he/she is advised to stay at home, avoid missing with others and wear a facemask when mingling with people.

Fourth: All individuals—particularly the old-aged, people suffering from chronic diseases or immunodeficiency—are urged to stick to wearing the face mask at closed areas.

Fifth: Citizens and residents are highly advised to take the booster dose of Covid-19.

The Supreme Committee expresses thanks to citizens and residents in the Sultanate of Oman for their cooperation, as well as their adherence to procedures and precautionary measures. It also lauds the ‘constructive role’ of government institutions and private establishments whose cooperation, the committee said, contributed to curbing the spread of the virus.
