According to Amina Mohammed, spectators will now be allowed into stadiums during games. In a tweet on Saturday, CS Amina claimed they reached an agreement after talking with Health CS Mutahi Kagwe."The Event organizers are expected to ensure they utilize up to 2/3rds capacity of the stadia, "she said. Each event organizer, however, must adhere to the criteria of the local and international federations in terms of spectators. Sporting activities should be held in stadiums with allotted seats and at least 1-meter physical separation between spectators.
It is required to designate an isolation room or place to house any symptomatic person detected at the event while awaiting patient transport to a medical facility. It's also a good idea to have a medical station and designated professionals on hand to help analyze instances and probable illnesses. President Uhuru Kenyatta abolished the nationwide dusk-to-dawn curfew earlier this week, effective immediately during the Mashujaa Day celebrations.
"I hereby order that the nationwide dusk to dawn curfew that has been in effect from March 27, 2020, be and is hereby vacated with immediate effect," Uhuru announced amid rapturous applause from those in the stadium. The President ,however, warned that the country was not yet out of the woods and urged Kenyans to follow the Ministry of Health's containment procedures. They should consider seat numbering for tracing people , temperature monitoring at entrances, and the use of visual reminders like stickers or wrist stamps to limit the chance of accidental touch.
The government has taken this action to allow spectators since a vaccination plan has commenced and the ministry of health anticipates to increase the number of people vaccinated in the country. This move is also a way of opening up the economy. Other countries especially in the UK have allowed full capacity in stadiums and mass vaccination all over the country.
