The government of Uganda plans to begin easing strict lockdown measures from June 2, 2020 as well as the reopening of schools for student set to sit for national examinations this year.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni made the announcement on May 18, 2020 adding that the government will provide standard masks to all Ugandans aged 6 years and above, distributed through the District Local Council system.
“The measures to ease lockdown as addressed will be activated only when each individual has received a standard mask distributed by the government of Uganda,” said President Museveni on his official Twitter account.
“Each person will be allocated one mask which must be worn all the time when in public.”
Uganda has been under lockdown for almost two months in a bid to stem the spread of Covid-19.
