More companies are still undergoing the certification process, thus, the number of companies certified to manufacture non-medical facemasks is expected to increase. UNBS will therefore issue updated lists periodically.

Wearing facemasks in public is mandatory for all Ugandans aged six (6) years and above, following the easing of the COVID-19 lockdown.
