The decision by the sultanate's supreme committee tasked with tackling the coronavirus pandemic was accompanied by a call for people to continue practices to reduce the risk of infection.
Members of the public should continue to adhere to preventive health measures and to stay home and isolate if they develop a fever or respiratory symptoms. They should also wear a mask in case of contact with a positive case, according to a statement released by the Oman News Agency (ONA).
"The Supreme Committee urges everyone, especially the elderly, people with chronic diseases and those with immunodeficiency, to adhere to wearing a mask in closed places and for citizens and residents to receive the booster dose of the vaccine," the committee said.
There have been 389,943 infections and 4,260 coronavirus-related deaths reported in Oman since the pandemic began, according to Reuters data.
