Health Minister Reviews Muscat International Airport Measures Implementation against COVID-19

9/3/2020

Within the Ministry of Health’s ongoing efforts taken against the spread of novel coronavirus, the Health Minister H.E. Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Al Saidi visited today (Monday) Muscat International Airport with the aim of reviewing all the precautionary and preventive procedures and ensuring their implementation as planned, accompanied by number of officials from the MOH and the Airport.  

It should be noted that MOH is carrying out a number of procedures in the Muscat International Airport including filling out the self-declaration form on the board. The health worker receives all arrivals before the passports area and assesses the form. If the traveler comes from the endemic countries, he/ she will be examined at the Health Surveillance Clinic in the arrivals area. If the traveler is symptomatic, laboratory testing will be carried out (by taking a swab). If the traveler’s health condition does not require institutional healthcare, the sample will be taken to the Health Surveillance Clinic, giving him/ her advice on home isolation.

If the traveler is coming from the endemic countries but does not suffer from any COVID-19 symptoms, he/ she will be briefed on the home or institutional quarantine.

A medical team is following-up the cases under quarantine and home isolation, as well as a team is designated to follow-up the institutional quarantined persons.
