Oman announces curfew, warns full lockdown amid surge in Covid-19 cases

Oman has announced a nighttime curfew and hinted at an impending full lockdown in response to a surge in Covid-19 cases.

All commercial activities will be shut down and restrictions will be placed on the movement of people and vehicles between 8 pm and 5 am from Sunday, March 28 to Thursday, April 8.

To lessen the impact of the virus, the country’s Supreme Committee is considering imposing a total ban on all movement between April and May 31.

Government schools have been instructed to continue online learning until the curfew’s set end-date of April 8, apart from those in Grade 12 who will continue with a blended approach mixing in-class and online lessons.
