In Kilifi, On Thursday, the county government closed a number of departments after several employees tested positive.
The Governor said 24 health officers had contracted the virus and directed the department of Health to employ extra personnel.
Kingi further stated that the new spike of infections was as a result of residents loosening COVID-19 health guidelines and protocols.
The County has recorded at least 504 Covid-19 positive cases since the pandemic struck. Some 404 of the cases were registered between August and October.
“Officers of the county government will be working from home and only those in critical sectors will be allowed to access offices. We are doing this because the six officers who got infected must have gotten the virus from people seeking services in our offices,” said Kingi, adding that all county buildings will be fumigated.
