Kenyan Dance Floors Closed in Covid-19 Fight

In a move aimed at restricting Covid-19 infections in pubs and restaurants during the festive season, the trade ministry has proposed new guidelines for the sale of alcohol. According to the protocols, bar owners are required to shield counters with perspex, to block contact between bartender and customer. Customers are prohibited from sitting at the counter. They are also required to close dance floors and have a designated person enforcing virus containment protocols. Any alcoholic drink retailers found in breach of Covid-19 rules in the Public Health Act Cap 242, will be held accountable and will will face legal action.
