Oman: Companies to pay for quarantine of staff

Oman’s Government Communication Centre has shared further updates and conditions on the provision of mandatory institutional quarantine for companies wishing to use their own accommodation facilities for staff quarantine.

Per the stipulation, such companies wishing to provide for staff quarantine in their own accommodation unit must submit a request for approval to the Director General of Social Development’s Relief and Shelter Sector.

An approval is required to activate the institutional mandatory quarantine of the organisation’s staff in their staff accommodation facility.

Other compulsory requirements include provision of a room with an attached toilet where the staff will be quarantined for seven days, providing meals in disposable containers, providing laundry services facility, as well as pick-up service from Muscat International Airport to the company’s designated accommodation facility where the staff is to be quarantined.

The expenses on account of the above would be borne by the company.
