State House has put in place a number of measures to curb further spread of the virus within its precincts. For a start, the gates were closed, denying entry to those who wanted to access the premises, and denying exit to those who were already inside.
Furthermore, the executive wing which houses the State House comptroller, the Spokesperson and other key officers, has been placed under partial lockdown and remains out of bounds for a majority of State House employees.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, who was confirmed by State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena to be safe and free from the virus, has cancelled all meetings with outsiders. All meetings and conferences are being held virtually.
At the gate, medical practitioners are supervising a strict screening process which involves visitors being given new face masks. The measures come at a time when Covid-19 cases have risen to 3,727.
