Supreme Committee: Primary School Classes 1-4 in Oman to go online

Muscat (ONA): As part of its ongoing convening, the Supreme Committee tasked with tackling development resulting from coronavirus covid-19 pandemic has studied update about the pandemic and means of protection against the disease and curb its spread.

The committee noted that statistics in the local front point to a considerable surge in case of community-based infection with Covid-19 variant Omicron, as well as a rise in related hospitalization cases in Oman.

This lead to a rise in the average of positive cases and hospitalization rates, while primary healthcare centers registered an increase in respiratory inflammation cases in all governorates of Oman, notably in the age-group of 5-12. This is an indication of widespread respiratory inflammations, among them Covid-19 attacks within the unvaccinated segment.

To protect the young learners and their families and to sustain the health system’s ability to handle the situation, the supreme committee decided to revert to the online education system for the first cycle of primary school (class 1-4) for a period of four weeks with effect from 16 January 2022.

The supreme committee lays emphasis on the commitment of all the endorsed precautionary measures. It stresses the need to stick to the 50% maximum capacity rate in establishments allowed to operate, particularly those frequented by a large number of people like commercial complexes, exhibitions, conference, wedding and sports halls.

The establishments are also required to solicit vaccination proof from their visitors, observe physical distance and demand that the visitors wear face masks.
