Oman’s Ministry of Tourism has released a statement today, [Tuesday, March 24] asking all hotels across Oman, in all governorates, to cooperate with the Ministry of Health (MOH) in donating spare rooms to be used under MOH supervision for quarantine purposes in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The statement clarified that, currently, the request comes as a precautionary measure only as the MOH grapples with counteracting the further spread of the novel coronavirus. The rooms would be used only as needed in case of an overflow of patients requiring quarantine.
Hotels who are willing to help with a contribution of spare rooms are encouraged to contact the Ministry at the numbers provided in the Tweet below.
