President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday extended the nationwide curfew for another 30 days in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19.
In his address to the nation, the president said that the curfew would continue to be enforced from 9pm to 4am.
The Head of State at the same time extended the closure of bars and night clubs by another 30 days.
The extension of closure of bars comes for the second time after giving the same directive in his last address.
The President said that the restriction on licensed hotels from selling alcohol has been lifted.
He also directed the Ministry of Health to coordinate with the Bar Owners Association to develop self-regulating mechanisms for clients before resumption.
Uhuru also extended the operation time for restaurants and eateries by one hour, allowing them to offer services until 8pm.
He also announced that the maximum number of persons allowed to attend weddings and funerals has been reviewed upwards from 15 to 100.
The address follows a meeting with the National Emergency Response Committee.
This comes as the country reported 213 new Covid-19 cases Tuesday, pushing the total number of confirmed infections across the country to 33,016.
According to the Ministry of Health, five new deaths have brought the total number of deaths to 564. There are now at least 19,296 people who have recovered from the virus.
During the speech, the president highlighted that the infections had reached a more manageable level with experts indicating that the infection rate had fallen from 13 per cent in June to 8 percent in August.
