The cabinet in Rwanda has reduced the night-time curfew by two hours as the country recorded a drop in new coronavirus cases.
The curfew will now run from 22:00 to 04:00 local time.
Public transport will operate at full capacity for sitting passengers and half capacity for standing passengers.
People attending conferences will no longer be required to have proof of a Covid-19 negative test, but organisers will be required to adhere to social distancing guidelines by ensuring the attendance is 50% of the venue capacity.
The cabinet said the penalties for not wearing masks and defying night curfew would remain.
Those found without face masks in public places will be fined $10 (£7.50). The same fine will be imposed for violating the 2m (6ft) social distancing rule in public, or ignoring the night-time curfew.
Some people who violated restrictions were taken to stadiums or school buildings where they were forced to sit all night or day.
Rwanda has so far confirmed 4,905 cases of Covid-19.
