The sixth batch of commercial activities in Oman will be allowed to open from today (25th August) but will still need to adhere to COVID-19 precautions.
The Supreme Committee has released a set of business activities that can restart and these include fitness centres, barber shops, all restaurants and cafes, ladies’ beauty parlours, traditional medicine clinics, wedding supplies shops, and meeting rooms in hotels.
Some barber shops had already enforced a call-to-book-appointment-system to minimise waiting and crowding. To ensure the mandated social distancing, the number of customers who can be attended at one time has also been reduced.
Gyms too were prepping their premises to welcome their patrons after almost five months of closure.
