#Administrative Notice

You are all aware that the world has been hit by a highly infectious pandemic known as COVID – 19 caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2, a virus closely related to the SARS virus.


You are also aware that Uganda has registered a number of cases of this disease. Any occurrence of cases inside the prison will be catastrophic considering the prime conditions that prevail.


This Administrative Instruction, therefore, serves to bring to your attention how it is spread, it’s symptoms and to guide the establishment of responses to absolutely prevent any circumstance that would further compromise the vulnerability of the prison environment.
