All political aspirants going for nomination are reminded to obey the standard operating procedures on COVID-19.
Concerning the resumption of schools for the candidate classes.
I believe that all the respective head teachers and proprietors are preparing well for October 15th as per the Ministry of Education guidelines.
The Ministry has given a number of Standard Operating Procedures that meant to keep our children safe from COVID-19.
It is important that the parents and teachers follow these guidelines properly.
The Ministry of Education is going to continue updating the schools and parents regarding what we have to do.
Also within the week, our Entebbe International Airport opened for air travel and passengers have started to move.
Civil Aviation Authority has put in place guidelines for all those who wish to use the airport.
All those who plan on traveling will do a COVID-19 test 3 days before travel and present their results confirming they are negative at the airport.
Travelers must have their masks on all the time while at the airport; they are expected to adhere to other guidelines as well such as social distancing.
Travelers are therefore expected to be at the airport four hours before departure in order to verify all that is required.
The CORONA Virus is still here with us and we cannot afford to relax.
The number of new cases is growing every day and Uganda will very soon reach the 10,000 mark.
The Ministry of Health recently came out with a number of new measures that we must adopt in order to deal with the increasing cases.
Emphasis now is on individual responsibility with everyone being called upon to take care of their own safety.
The total number of cases is now 8, 602 cases coming from 110 districts. The number of deaths still stands at 79.
Always remember to put on your mask all the time when in public or even at home as long as you are in a group of people.
Remember to wash your hands with soap and keep the social distance as advised by Ministry of Health.
Let everyone play their part in bringing down infections.
