Government Officials Banned From Using Public Transport Over Covid-19

The Government has officially banned all of its officials from the continued use of public transport. This is due to the fear of the rapid contraction or spreading of the deadly coronavirus with its new fast-spreading variants

A memo dated June 17, 2021, to commissioners, Executive Directors, and all staff informed them of the worsening covid-19 situation. This, therefore, necessitated a ban on the use of public transportation means including taxis, trains, and Bodaboda.

‘’According to current information, the pandemic situation in the country is worsening and hence the need for increased vigilance. Further to the earlier guidance on the management of the pandemic, all staff who use public transport should stay at home,’’ the memo reads in part.

The memo further told the government officials who are permitted to drive government vehicles should drive themselves and leave their drivers home.

It is also says in the memo that those who can work from home should stay there. They will only step in to the office if their physical appearance is paramount.

The development comes at a time when the country continues to experience a rapid increase in coronavirus infections.

However, President Museveni will address the nation later today on the Covid situation in the country.

Many on the other hand have concluded that he will impose a total lockdown on the country. This is as the last resort to containing the situation.
