The Makadara Law Court was on Wednesday, July 22 closed for 14 days following confirmation of coronavirus cases.
According to a statement from the Judiciary Chief Registrar Anne Amadi, two cases of coronavirus were confirmed in Makadara court, prompting for the closure.
“We direct that the court be closed for fourteen (14 days) and all Magistrates and staff to proceed on self-quarantine forthwith,” said Amadi.
The break in court operations is to allow disinfection of the premise and seeking of medical attention for those who may have been infected.
The Mombasa Law Court, which was also closed after coronavirus cases among its staff were confirmed, was re-opened on July 6.
The Mombasa cases were asymptomatic and have since tested negative for COVID-19.
The Judiciary is now advising its staff and court users, and Kenyans at large, to adhere to the Ministry of Health COVID-19 containment protocols.
