On the Vision Big Dabate, a number of people argue that since malls have been left to open, under strict guidelines; this should be the same way arcades should be handled.

As arcades remain closed, traders say they need to be left to open as long as they commit to pay attention to the Standard Operating Procedures that will be set by Government.

On the Vision Big Dabate, a number of people argue that since malls have been left to open, under strict guidelines; this should be the same way arcades should be handled.

Ivan Atwijukire says, "I don't see why arcades should remain closed yet entrance and exit can be manned well on such building more even sufficiently compared to markets." This is the same view expressed by Ntege Kigongo.

Hawa Hussein says, "Government should allow people to work from the arcades because it's easy to control them at that point, other than when they spread on the streets." A number of people have now started selling their merchandise on streets, to be the closure of the arcades move by Government.

More so, Mary Tukahirwa says, "People need money to live, pay rent and taxes. No short cut."
Peace Mirembe also says that the Government needs to be peaceful and let them re-open.

 However, some of them seem to be giving in. Asher Ajroush Namatovu says, "We have no choice. Survival will be for the the fittest in the most literal sense."

However, President Yoweri Museveni, in his last national address on the COVID-19 matter, directed that the, ‘Shopping arcades, shopping malls, hardware shops should remain closed."

In his view, this is the best way to keep the city safer from a spread of infections of the COVID-19 in the community.
