Ministry of Health has closed 16 quarantine centres in Entebbe municipality.
Majority of the quarantine centres were hotels and guesthouses. They included Entebbe Central Inn, Imperial Botanical Beach hotel, Imperial Golf View hotel and Protea hotel.
Others were Migingo Suites, Acacia Boutique hotel, Dairy Institute and the Fisheries Training Institute which hosted some of the suspects. The Fisheries Institute closed the quarantine on Monday after all the 30 suspects who tested negative for COVID-19 were discharged.
Captain Dr David Magoba, the in-charge of the quarantine centres in Entebbe, says the only quarantine centre in the area is at Survey and Land Management Institute where 17 suspects are quarantined.
The suspects include eight police officers, two military officers and the people who had contact with a woman who tested positive from the institute.
With only one active quarantine centre, some of the managers of the hotels say they are now disinfecting their premises and will resume normal business after the lockdown. These include the Imperial Botanical Beach hotel and Imperial Golf View hotel.
A supervisor at Imperial Beach hotel, who spoke on condition of anonymity, says the hotel was closed as soon as all the 58 suspects were discharged. The hotel has 239 rooms and usually had a 70 per cent occupancy rate before the outbreak of the COVID-19.
