Ugandan companies involved in the sourcing of external employment for migrant workers abroad are to resume business after the government announced that it had relaxed the Coronavirus restrictions.
Labour Minister, Frank Tumwebaze tweeted that the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development will be lifting the ban on labour export by licensed companies in accordance with the existing mandatory Covid SOPs for all travelers.
He said this followed the relaxing of a number of Covid lockdown measures by the Ministry of Health and resumption of air travel.
Tumwebaze further said his ministry’s Permanent Secretary will issue a detailed statement on the matter.
Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng told journalists at her home in Bukasa-Muyenga yesterday that the government had relaxed the virus induced lockdown by, among others, lifting restrictions on mass gatherings for prayers, political rallies, meetings and weddings with the number of attendees being revised from 70 to 200.
Cinema halls and gyms are to re-open starting November 14th while bars and discos remain closed.
