Omani citizens, diplomats, health workers and their families have been exempted from the ban.

Oman's COVID-19 Supreme Committee has also instructed malls, commercial outlets, restaurants and cafeterias to operate at 50 per cent capacity, while children under the age of 12 are barred from entering these outlets.
