Traders, Boda-Boda riders and saloon owners have been warned to adhere to terms set by president Museveni as they open their businesses after several months of lockdown.
This was sounded by the UPDF Second Division spokesperson Maj. Charles Kabona while speaking to our reporter at his office.
In his address last night, the president said saloons and arcades that have been allowed to reopen must follow the Standard Operating Procedures among them not selling in corridors, steps or verandahs, having temperature guns, enforcing social distancing and hand washing among others.
He also allowed boda-boda riders to carry passengers starting on July 27th, provided the riders and passengers wear face masks and helmets.
He said that boda boda operators will be required to keep a record of passengers they transport to enable health workers to trace them in case a rider tests positive for COVID-19.
Now Maj. Charles Kabona, the UPDF Second Division spokesperson, has urged all traders, Boda-Boda riders and saloon owners to adhere to these SOPs as issued by the ministry of health.
