President Museveni has reopened places of worship with strict conditions.
He said the National Task Force has reviewed the sectors that were pending lifting of restrictions.
“The places of worship can now open under the following conditions,” he said Wednesday while addressing the nation.
Limit the number of worshippers at any one time to not more than 200 provided the place of worship can ensure physical distancing of 2 meters on either side and adequate aeration.
There must be strict adherence to all SOPs at all times i.e. hand washing/ use of alcohol based sanitizer, temperature monitoring, and consistent wearing of face masks by all congregants including the choir and preachers.
No congregation for worship after curfew hours.
The 200-persons-limit, physical distancing and all other SOPs should be respected even during special occasions e.g. weddings, funeral services, confirmation etc.
Partner with Government to communicate and mobilize the population for vaccination and other control measures.
