OMR 1,000 fine for violating COVID-19 rules in Oman: Supreme Committee

Muscat: A fine of OMR1,000 will be imposed for violating quarantine procedures, the Supreme Committee said on Tuesday.

The Supreme Committee reviewed the reports from the departments concerned, and discussed the non-compliance of some citizens and residents with health quarantine procedures, either by stripping off the tracking bracelet or by skipping the post-quarantine test or by failing to return the tracking bracelet to the authorities. Accordingly, the Committee decided to impose OMR1,000 fine against anyone who fails to stick to these procedures. 

Praising the cooperation of all people by the precautionary measures approved by the departments concerned, which, the Committee observed, has led to a considerable decline in numbers of patients admitted to hospital wards and intensive care units.

A statement issued online by Oman News Agency, ( ONA ), said:”The committee looks at the reports received from the competent authorities to follow up the quarantine procedures, which stated that some citizens and residents do not adhere to these procedures, and in the interest of everyone’s health, the committee decided to impose a fine of 1,000 OMR on everyone who does not abide by these procedures.”
