Kenya Reviews Covid-19 Rules, Exempts Tanzanians From Quarantine

This is after the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority included Tanzania among states and territories whose travellers into the country will be exempt from quarantine. Earlier, Tanzanians arriving in Kenya were not allowed to mingle freely with the public until they finished the 14-day quarantine period. This resulted into a diplomatic dispute between the two countries largely occasioned by a failure to agree on the Covid-19 protocols to be followed in the cross-border movement of people and goods. However, Kenya Airways, alongside AirKenya Express, Fly540 and Safarilink Aviation, remain locked out the Tanzanian market for a second month now in retaliation for a decision by Nairobi to retain Tanzania on the red list of nations with high risk of coronavirus cases.
