Schools wishing to reopen have also been slapped with requirements they should adhere to before allowing students back.

Some of the measurements include ensuring that both teachers and students should wear masks, temperatures are checked regularly and disinfection is observed.

The new rules are against foreigners who are still not allowed into the country until the pandemic is contained.

Movement of citizens across different locations is also restricted with those planning requested to get permission from the government first.

Once one has moved to another location, they will be required to undergo a mandatory 14 days quarantine.

Botswana has recorded the least numbers of COVID-19 cases at 29 as their death record stands at only one.

The government acted swiftly through lockdown immediately after the first case was confirmed in the country.
