Despite the fact that Kenya has reopened its borders to almost all the countries of the world (13 nations, including India and Brazil, where the virus situation is still very serious, remain blocked or are required to be quarantined) and accepts tourists without imposing anything other than a molecular swab carried out no later than 96 hours after arrival in Nairobi or Mombasa and one on departure carried out no later than 72 hours before, in Kenya the pandemic still imposes certain restrictions.
The most important of all, which directly affects people's habits and the economy, is the curfew regime that President Uhuru Kenyatta recently extended until 17 October. The curfew, which includes the closure of all activities and the cessation of all movement except for exempted categories and services defined as essential, begins at 10 pm and ends at 4 am. The initial deadline for the measure was reported to be 30 August, but on 18 August the President extended it for a further 60 days.
According to the same decree, domestic bars must close their doors at 7pm and restaurants at 9pm.
As for other restrictions, masks must still be worn in public places and shops, and in all meeting situations, where it is still recommended that social distances of at least 1.2 metres be respected. At the entrance of each activity, it is also compulsory to measure the body temperature of those entering and to invite them to disinfect their hands.
All gatherings and meetings, including political gatherings of any form and number of people are prohibited, while weddings and funerals are strictly limited to a maximum of 100 people.
Burials must be conducted within 96 hours of confirmation of the death of the person involved in the funeral and this must also happen for those who did not die from the virus.
The President has recently requested that the authorities keep an even closer watch on any breaches of the restrictions.
