Eleven staff members of the Judiciary in Mombasa have tested positive for Covid-19 over the past 24 hours.
Chief Justice David Maraga said Friday that the infected persons include Judicial officers and registry staff.
"Their primary contacts within the courts totalling 118 officers have been identified and must now go into self-quarantine with immediate effect," CJ Maraga said.
The affected courts are the main court building, the city court and the Tononoka children's court.
Mr Maraga suspended all open court sessions in the coastal city until further notice.
"We shall, however, as much as possible, endeavor to offer online and other virtual services to court users," the CJ said.
The suspension of the court activities comes a week after a KCB Bank outlet at the Mombasa Law Courts was shut to curb spread of the disease.
On Friday, the Ministry of Health announced that Mombasa has a total of 1,197 Covid-19 cases.
