Instructing public vehicles to carry half capacity passengers with a 14-seater matatu to carry 8 passengers, 60-seater bus to carry 30 passengers et cetera.
Supermarkets to control the number of shoppers at every given point with an estimated 100 or fewer shoppers per hour.
Public vehicles, shopping centers and all other public places to provide water and soap for washing hands or alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
Entertainment places to close business by 7:30 pm and allow people home and ensure thorough cleaning and disinfection of their premises.
People urged to enhance social distancing by ensuring a one-meter distance among persons in all directions.
