Oman’s land border will remain closed until further notice to curb the spread of coronavirus, daily Times of Oman reported.

Citizens wishing to return home should do so before 10 a.m. on Feb. 21, 2021 as “no individuals will be allowed to enter the Sultanate till the closure of land borders is lifted,” the report added.

The closure initially went into effect on Jan. 18 following Oman’s detection of its first case of the variant of the virus that emerged in Britain, on a resident who arrived from the UK.
