Press Statement on Corana virus pandemic

Chairman CoG20195th May 2021

The Council of Governors supports the decision by H.E The President to lift the cessation of movement in the disease zoned area following the decrease in COVID-19 infections in the five Counties. This gives Kenyans an opportunity to inject extra time to their businesses which will in turn boost the economy. As H.E The President reiterated, we also join him to urge members of the public to continue exercising strict caution as we are still battling the third wave of the pandemic which is very lethal.
As at yesterday, the confirmed positive cases stand at 160,904 as per the daily situational report issued by the Ministry of Health. This is an indication that the virus is still within and we must all take personal responsibility in the fight against COVID-19.
Despite concerted effort by the National and County Governments, some places of worship and the matatu sector continue to disregard the COVID-19 guidelines. In this regard, the County Governments through the joint intergovernmental emergency response committees will strictly enforce the rule of wearing of masks, social distancing and washing of hands in these public spaces. All businesses are herewith directed not to provide any service to anyone who is not wearing a mask. I urge each Kenyan to take personal responsibility because the pandemic comes for you alone, therefore take care of yourself and be strict, resolute and unapologetic about it.
