Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday night announced measures to allow resumption of business operations in the country, including operations of motorbike taxis to carry passengers.
They were initially only allowed to carry goods because it would be difficult for passengers to observe social distancing to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Motorbike taxis commonly known as boda bodas will now be allowed to operate until 18:00 local time starting 27 July.
Passengers will be required to wear face masks as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus.
The president also reduced night-time curfew by two hours - it will now start at 21:00 local time.
In a televised address, President Museveni also allowed hair salons to reopen as well as some shopping arcades that met the required health standards.
Local media report that 110 shopping arcades are compliant.
Mr Museveni said schools and places of worship will remain closed.
He said the changes were made after advice from scientists.
Uganda has 1,072 confirmed cases of coronavirus and no reported death.
