The three coastal counties, Mombasa, Kwale, and Kilifi, will as from today remain out of bounds following the Presidential directive to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The three devolved unites are under containment after being identified as hotspots for the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Nairobi was the first county to take the orders into effect on Monday after recording the highest number of infections.
In the coastal counties, the directive ensures there will be no movement from Mombasa to Kilifi, Mombasa to Kwale, and vice versa.
Coast regional commissioner John Elungata has said that the police have already identified the linking points between the counties and have set up roadblocks to ensure no unauthorized persons flop the rules.
The roadblocks will have multi-agency teams comprising the police, Ministry of Health Officials and National Intelligence Service (NIS) officials.
In Kwale, the roadblocks will be set up at Kombani, Samburu, and the Kenya-Tanzania border town of Lunga Lunga.
In Kilifi, the roadblocks will be at Mavueni, Mariakani, Mtwapa Bridge, Maji ya Chumvi andSabaki Bridge along Garsen- Malindi road.
In Mombasa county, there will be roadblocks at Nyali Bridge, Makupa causeway, Shanzu, Mtopanga, and Likoni Channel.
The Likoni channel will remain open to serve residents crossing from Likoni to Mombasa Island.
Exempted from the containment orders, are individuals and vehicles that provide essential services.
However, the individuals and vehicles will have to provide proper documentation to be allowed through the roadblocks.
Mr Elungata, who is also the chairman of the regional security committee, warned that firm action will be taken against those who defy the orders.
“We do not expect to engage in running battles with the residents because the instructions are clear,” he said.
He added that the residents who will be moving within the countries are expected to have face masks on.
