Muscat: The 19th Press Conference of the Supreme Committee on Covid-19 held on Thursday, 12 November 2020.

H.E. Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammad Al Saeedi – Minister of Health, member of the Supreme Committee

Minister of Health – “We welcome the health sector retirees who are wishing to work in different areas.”

Minister of Health – The borders are open with the neighbouring countries, and travel is allowed for Omanis and residents as long as they adhere to the announced procedures when travelling and upon returning to the Sultanate.

Minister of Health – The home quarantine period for returning travellers cannot be considered as a sick leave, and the traveller must calculate that period from his leave balance

Minister of Health – The Supreme Committee made a decision to return 70% of government employees, and the mechanism for organizing the process was left for each unit head. As for the 30% who do not go to their workplace, they cannot be considered on leave, but rather they must work remotely, this decision may be reconsidered later.

Minister of Health – The WHO and those concerned with epidemic and infectious diseases did not state that infected people do not require quarantine because the virus is not contagious
