Eased Lockdown to commence on May 26

Private cars will be allowed to move starting May 26 as government moves to ease virus induced lockdown, President Museveni has said.

The President was, however, quick to note that this will only apply to 95 districts out of 135 that make up the country.

He said transport restrictions will remain in place for all the 40 districts that border Uganda and other countries.

“Private cars will be allowed to move on the 26th May. For border districts, we shall not allow public or private transport. They are on the frontline. They are the ones that can either save or destroy us by allowing infiltration from neighbouring countries”.

“For public transport in the districts that are not near the border, this will be relaxed on June 4. During this time, those concerned will discuss with transporters and make sure everything is in order,” Mr Museveni said in a televised address on Tuesday to clarify his earlier address.

He also said Ugandans can get facemasks on their own provided they are the right quality.

“The Ministry of Health will tell you the right type,” he said.
