Timeline and information

Kenya took a few early measures in order to curb the further spreading of the coronavirus in the country. On March 17, the country forbade the entry of all foreigners coming from countries affected by the coronavirus.

Exceptions on this rule are being made for residents and foreigners with a valid permit, but only on the condition, they will self-isolate for 14 days. Every person who entered the country in the two weeks prior to the 17th has to go into a self-quarantine for 14 days.

Kenya also ordered the closure of all schools and universities on the 17th of March. Later, on March 25th, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced a nationwide curfew from 7 pm to 5 am starting on Friday, March 27.
