Kenyan's education system is structured on a model with 8 years of compulsory education including preschool and primary education, followed by secondary education or vocational or technical education. While more affluent learners attend private boarding schools, others commute daily to day schools. These learners use public transportation, making them highly susceptible to the virus. This also poses the risk of spreading the virus to the local communities.

To reduce the spread of the virus, the government of Kenya closed all learning institutions on Marc 16, 2020. Schools were expected to implement online learning using technology and internet. However, lack of broadband internet and cost of Wi-Fi in some remote areas limited the amount of e-learning available to learners. However, all learning institutions were later opened.

Parents, students and teachers received bad news from the Ministry of Health after the report emerged that 104 students from Nyeri County tested positive for Covid 19. Ngorano day and boarding secondary school in Mathura, Nyeri County was yesterday closed indefinitely after more than 104 students tested positive for Covid 19.
