Movement between governorates in Oman restricted

Some areas in Muscat have been closed to protect citizens and residents from the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, according to Oman TV.

The areas in Muttrah include places like Ruwi, Hamriya, Wadi Kabir and Darsait. 'The wilayat of Muttrah has been isolated for health reasons for an indefinite period,' the ROP stated.

Essential supplies will be made available so that people don't face any problem. Ambulances, essential supply vehicles like food trucks, fuel tankers and sanitation service providers will be allowed to enter the area.

Those exempt from the decision are:

1. Employees in the public and private sector whose nature of work requires them to attend in order for it to be completed, all of which will be determined by the heads of departments.

2. Ambulance and emergency vehicles.

3. Military and security vehicles.

4. Vehicles that transport foodstuff and basic necessities for citizens and residents.

5. Vehicles that transport construction and commercial materials and oil derivatives and the likes of materials that serve the two sectors.

6. Exceptional cases of citizens and residents according to the assessments of the security points between the governorates.

The Sultan's Armed Forces also stress the importance of staying in homes and not going out except in cases of importance.
