The Covid-19 National Taskforce has proposed the reopening of Entebbe airport, borders, places of worship and universities for final year medical students.

The taskforce headed by Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda sent proposals to President Museveni on Monday.

According to Daily Monitor, the taskforce maintained the closure of schools, bars and public gyms, among others.

The taskforce proposed that ministries of Education and Health will study the possibility of reopening the schools.

On prayer centres, the taskforce said worship places should reopen but the number of worshippers should not exceed 70.

In the same proposal, the team dropped the consideration for a lockdown in Kampala city.

The taskforce recommended that Entebbe airport and borders should reopen on October 1.

The taskforce said Covid regulations should be strictly enforced in Kampala with penalties, which include community work and fines to those who defy the guidelines.

They also proposed to government to set up a special lane for ambulances with police escort.

Foreigners on a tourist visa should possess a Covid free certificate valid for 72 hours.

The proposals were sent to President Museveni for final consideration and approval.

He will then address the nation once a decision is made.
