Operations at the Makadara Law Courts have been suspended for 14 days after two staffers tested positive for coronavirus.
The Registrar of the Judiciary, in a statement dated July 22, advised the Magistrates and other members of staff to self-quarantine during the period.
“We direct that the court be closed for fourteen days and all Magistrates and staff to proceed on self-quarantine forthwith,” read the statement in part.
The break will also allow disinfection of the premises and allow those affected to seek medical attention.
Services at the court station will resume on July 27
The statement further directed that Milimani Law Courts will be closed for disinfection between July 24 and July 25.
There were no critical cases reported at the court, as the infected staffers were asymptomatic, and all have already recovered from the disease.
A Mombasa court that was closed under similar circumstances on June 19 resumed operations on July 6.
Chief Justice David Maraga said the court was closed after 11 staffers tested positive for coronavirus and that 118 close contacts of the infected had been identified and traced.
