Tourism is one of the sectors that have been hit hard by the restrictions imposed to combat the spread of coronavirus. Tourism players can now smile after the President announced on Tuesday while officiating Heroes’ Day celebrations that internal travel can resume.
The President admitted that the tourism sector has been hit hard, but expressed hope that it will be revived.
He advised tourism players and travellers to observe social distancing guidelines and others recommended by the Ministry of Health.
Elsewhere, Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli said his country was open to receive foreign tourists and anyone willing to travel outside is allowed.
Uganda is yet to open her borders and continues to tighten restrictions, blocking entry. Internally, some restrictions have been relaxed. Public means of transport have since resumed business, among other things.
Schools remain closed and according to the President, parents do not want their kids to return to school not until a vaccine is found or the virus is kicked away.
