If you were planning on having your ‘holiday’ out in the pub, you are mistaken. Health CS Mutahi Kagwe on Friday issued an update on the number of Kenyans who have tested positive for the Coronavirus.
The CS said there were no new cases recorded but the country had to take the necessary precautionary measures since in most countries the cases increased drastically after the first two weeks.
The new directives include:
- Bars and entertainment joints to close at 7.30pm effective Monday
- Bars have to ensure social distancing is adhered to
- Introduce home deliveries where possible
- Supermarkets to limit number of shoppers at any given time based on premise size
- A queue management system where the elderly, expectant and the disabled will be given preference
- Supermarkets encouraged to operate for 24hours (will be provided with security where possible)
- One person at a time shopping policy i.e. leave your children at a home when you go to shop
- Management of open-air markets asked to ensure the area is disinfected thoroughly
- Goods should be placed on raised platforms
- 14-seater matatu to carry a maximum of 8 passengers
- 25-seater matatu to carry a maximum of 15 passengers
- 30-seater and above should only carry a maximum of 60% of the total capacity (this applies to SGR)
- Matatus should be disinfected at the end of the day
- Employees should be encouraged to work from home
- Those at the office should also maintain some distance from one another
