While lifting the lockdown, President Museveni said places of worship will remain closed for another 60 days when the order would be reviewed. For schools, Museveni said, they will remain under key and lock at least until students aged between 12 and 18 have been vaccinated.

Kabanda who was franked by the Minister of ICT and National Guidance Dr Chris Baryomunsi and the state minister of Kampala Kyofatogabye Kabuye, said although President Museveni yesterday lifted a ban on arcades and Kikuubo, this will only happen after these places comply with all the Standard Operating Procedures put in place to fight against Covid-19
