Schools And Churches Open, Museveni Further Eases Lockdown

President Museveni has continued to ease lockdown with the reopening of schools and Churches. In his 20th address since the outbreak in March, the president finally came out to confirm the rumours about the reopening of schools.

Schools were closed on the 18th of March to curb the spread of COVID 19. He, however, has only opened for candidates.

The candidates include Primary seven pupils, Senior four, and Senior six students. The president considered finalists at tertiary and University. Schools are scheduled to open on 15th October 2020.

The president will consider learners in other classes in January 2021. This is so because the government doesn’t think is ready to handle large congregations in schools.

Furthermore, the president considered churches too. The president gave a go-ahead to the opening of churches but with only a maximum of 70 people.

The president didn’t consider Sunday school because children are vulnerable to this pandemic. However, the president prohibited night prayers until further notice.

Other activities allowed to open apart from schools

The president has also opened borders and airports but for only tourists. He attached a number of conditions among which are, the tourist must have tested COVID free in the last 72 hours.

The tourist must not engage with the local people and more. In the activities given green light, outdoor sports will operate without fans. However, sportswomen and men must test before commencing.

However, some places remain closed like bars, gyms, casinos, indoor games, Cinemas, and mass gatherings. Curfew time stands as it is now that is 9 pm to 6 am.

This is so far not bad even though now cases are high with a worrying mortality number of 63 as per now
