President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has reopened schools for only candidate classes and university finalists.
Museveni said the reopening is scheduled for October 15.
Museveni said the solution for other classes will be forged in January 2020.
He added that International Schools which have limited number of learners can engage the Ministry of Education on the way forward.
The classes which will resume business include primary seven, senior four, senior six and university finalists.
The President said that a total number of 1.2 million learners in candidate classes can have enough space in education institutions to observe social distance.
He said that government has considered reopening schools for candidates since it would be hard to accommodate two batches of candidates next year.
The President was Sunday addressing the nation on COVID-19.
