The Commissioner General of Prisons Dr. Johnson Byabashaija has directed all Regional Prisons Commanders (RPCs) and Officers in Charge of Prisons to be more strict in enforcing Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to prevent officers and inmates from getting infected.

In a circular dated 7th June 2021, the Commissioner General ordered that regardless of whether one has a covid-19 testing or vaccination certificate or not, no visitor will be allowed to access any of the prisons in the country.

He said the admission of new prisoners will continue at the current new reception centres and they will be re-integrated after 14 days of mandatory quarantine after sample testing.
