What you need to know:

  • Under the new directives, public transport means including taxis are allowed to resume operations starting August 2 with a stringent 50 per cent passenger limit.

President Museveni last evening eased lockdown restrictions following the advice of scientists and projections from National Planning Authority (NPA).
In the revised Covid-19 measures, the President lifted inter-district travel ban on private cars and allowed taxis, buses and boda boda cyclists operate at 50 per cent capacity. Public transport resumes on Monday but with strict adherence to Covid-19 guidelines. The President has also warned that any violation of SOPs would directly send public transport and other reopened sectors back into lockdown.
