Today, Tuesday, a total closure was announced between the governments from Saturday, July 25 to August 8 in the Sultanate of Oman, as part of the precautionary measures taken by the Sultanate to prevent the outbreak of the new Corona virus.


The Omani News Agency said that the closure includes a curfew, and the closure of all public places and shops during the mentioned period, which includes Eid al-Adha, from seven in the evening until six in the morning.

The Sultanate also announced the continuation of prohibitions of all kinds of gatherings, especially Eid prayers, traditional Eid markets (landings), greeting gatherings, and collective celebrations of the feast.

Last March, Oman imposed closings in certain areas such as Muscat, Dhofar, Duqm, and some tourist towns, but since April it has begun a gradual easing of procedures, allowing the reopening of commercial centers and raising the procedures for closure and general isolation from the Muscat Governorate, which includes the capital.

The Sultanate closed the air and land borders except to return the stranded.
