No mandatory quarantine for foreigners without Covid-19 symptoms – CS Macharia


There will be no mandatory quarantine for travellers arriving in Kenya if they do not show Covid-19 symptoms, the government announced Wednesday.

To enhance safety measures and curb the spread of Covid-19, Transport Cabinet Minister James Macharia said airports across the country will be restricted to workers and travellers only, except for cases where travellers need special assistance.

“The new protocol also includes measures to minimise contact between crew and passengers at the airport terminus, and to limit physical contact between security officers and passengers, and between airport staff and luggage.

“Kenya Railways will deploy 10 coaches for passengers with a total one-way capacity of 600 passengers (or 50 percent of capacity), and one additional coach that shall be used to isolate passengers suspected to be infected with Covid-19,” he said.
