President Museveni has directed schools to reopen on Monday, January 10, 2022 while bars, music concerts, stadiums and cinemas are to operate again in January, two weeks after schools reopen but, following Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
In a broadcasted state address on Friday, December 31, 2021, in Rwakitura, Mr. Museveni said that the transport sector will be opened fully while following the necessary SOPs such as wearing masks, full vaccination by both crew of the Public Service Vehicle and travelers except persons under the age of 18.
Curfew time will also be lifted for everybody when the performing arts reopen except for motorcyclists whose curfew time will remain from 7pm to 5am.
He however said that some of the measures may be reversed if covid-19 high dependency and ICU bed occupancy exceeds 50% and if the daily rate of the hospitalization of critically ill patients is sustained at 30 per day for 5 days in 2 or more covid units.
The ministry of Arts and Culture, Health, Education and Sports will give details on the given sector.
