Authorities Indefinitely Extend Lockdown

Jun 25, 2020

On 23 June 2020, Ugandan authorities indefinitely extended internal lockdown measures aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. A nightly curfew from 1900 to 0630 local time (1600 to 0330 UTC) remains in place. Furthermore, public transportation is allowed at 50% occupancy — although tuk tuks and boda bodas (motorcycle taxis) are currently not permitted to carry passengers — and travel using private vehicle is limited to four people per vehicle. All individuals over the age of six years are required to wear a face mask when in public and gatherings of more than 5 people are prohibited. Many nonessential businesses have reopened but remain subject to restrictive measures, including social distancing, abiding by the curfew and ensuring patrons wear face masks inside the establishments.
