Supreme Committee issues several decisions, to close commercial activities in some governorates

Muscat: The Supreme committee has decided to close all commercial activities in some governorates of the Sultanate, close beaches and parks, and determine the period for allowing the return of citizens.

“The Supreme Committee decides to continue to close all land ports of the Sultanate until further notice, except for the passage of trucks, and all citizens outside the Sultanate who wish to return through the land ports are allowed to enter the Sultanate,” the statement said.

“This permit is valid for a period of ten days only, extending from the time of publishing this statement until twelve o'clock in the morning of Sunday February 21, 2021, after which individuals will not be allowed to pass until the land ports are reopened,” the statement said.
