Uganda: Museveni Reopens Airport, Schools for Finalists; Bars Remain Closed

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has this evening confirmed the reopening of Entebbe International Airport and land borders for tourists, coming in and going out, provided they tested negative 72 hours before arrival in Uganda.

The President said this would be on condition that tour operators ensure that tourists do not mix with Ugandans.

“The tourists will be driven straight from the airport to their destinations or to designated transit hotels that are set aside for that purpose,” President Museveni said adding that, business delegations shall also be handled in the same way by the local partners.

“Returning Ugandans, who have negative PCR results, will be allowed to go home. The Ministry of Health will only get their addresses for follow up,” he said.

He also lifted restrictions on movements at the border districts. However, curfew, from 9pm to 6am, will be maintained; while boda bodas, their movements will still end at 6pm.
