The good news to the entertainment industry is that finally musicians have been allowed to stage concerts after months of complaining.
This was communicated today during a press conference at Uganda media center by Sam Okolle the chairman board of trustees at the Uganda national cultural center.
He said “I am therefore happy to announce to you that our sector (Arts and Culture) has now been opened to operate but with strict observance of the MOH COVID-19 guidelines and SOPs,” Okello announced.
Boom Gossip has learned some of the SOPs include music concerts happening between 7am-7pm, only 200 people to be allowed to attend, social distancing as well as happening places to have one entry which shall be equipped with sanitizers and temperature gun.
According to Okello, events promoters who lost revenue during the lock down shall also be given 1.2 billion Ugandan shillings by government through ministry of gender.
Concerts and shows were suspended in March 2020 by the head of state YK Museveni as a way of monitoring the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
