The Omani News Agency said yesterday that the Sultanate of Oman will lift, as of Saturday, the restrictions of inter-governorate transfers, which it had imposed on July 25, to limit the spread of the Corona virus during the Eid al-Adha holiday.
From Saturday, Oman will also reduce curfew hours, from nine in the evening until five in the morning for a week, instead of seven in the evening until six in the morning. The complete closure will remain in force in the Dhofar Governorate in the south, until further notice.
