Tuesday June 16, 2020 – State House, under President Uhuru Kenyatta, has revised its access rules after four of its employees tested positive for the dreaded Coronavirus.
The four tested positive for Covid-19 after a mass testing exercise on Thursday last week.
According to reports, State House rolled out a raft of measures to ensure that the spread of the virus remains at its minimum.
First, State House closed off its gates with those already inside the residence not allowed to leave while those outside the facility denied access.
The executive wing of the house that hosts key officers including the State House Comptroller and the Spokesperson has been placed under partial lockdown and remains out of bounds for a majority of State House employees.
After the virus was confirmed in the country, a number of adjustments were made in State House with President Uhuru Kenyatta canceling all planned meetings outside of State House and settling to hold the conferences virtually.
At the gate, visitors are subjected first to a screening to check their temperatures, at point B, thorough screening is carried out with sanitising carried out on visitors and their equipment.
At the gate, medical officers are planted to supervise the screening processes.
Another holding area located 100 meters from the gate is where more screening is carried out including visitors being asked to dump their facemasks for new ones.
The four who tested positive had been isolated and contact tracing had commenced.
