Entebbe, Uganda — Primary and secondary schools will re-open next year after 4.8 million people in priority and vulnerable groups are fully vaccinated. That includes teachers and 330,000 students aged 18 years and above.

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni said this in his address today, in which he said institutions of higher learning can open November 1, as soon as vaccinations of the priority groups are done. The rest of the learning institutions will open in January 2022. (full speech bottom)

He also announced that places of worship can re-open with strict SOPs, and numbers limited to 200. Also allowed are funerals and weddings, also at a limit of 200.

On curfew, he said, “restriction of movement of persons at nighttime is key to the enforcement of other preventive health measures. Curfew remains at 7:00pm – 5:30am. Boda-bodas should stop movement by 6:00pm.”
