Muscat – The Supreme Committee in charge of dealing with the effects of COVID-19 pandemic issued a decision on Sunday to allow religious, social, cultural and sports activities across Oman after the virus curve showed a sharp fall recently.

Participation of people would however be restricted to only those with at least one dose of vaccine till the end of September and to fully vaccinated for any events, including exhibitions and conferences, from October onwards.

‘The events are allowed provided that the number of attendees does not exceed 50 per cent of the capacity of the halls and sites designated for holding such activities and events,’ the Supreme Committee said in a statement, adding that the competent authorities would ‘undertake the task of organising and monitoring the implementation of the precautionary measures for the mentioned activities’.

‘Those coming from Iraq and Iran are subject to the same controls established for those coming from other countries of the world,’ the Supreme Committee statement added.
