As the government continues to give measures to reduce crowds in public places, Huduma Centers across the country have also heeded the call by reducing the number of services being offered.

The centers will be offering two services including the collection of processed Identity Cards as well as the collection of processed Birth Certificates.

Members of the public visiting huduma centers across the country have been asked to utilise provided hand sanitisers as they maintain a distance of about 2 meters from each other.

 

Customers have also been reminded that they can still access other government services online and via mobile platforms.

These services include KRA, Kenya Power, Business registration, CRB, selected NHIF and NSSF services, NTSA among other services.

The government had asked its employees in various sectors to offer their services from their homes in order to reduce the spread of the virus.

Several companies have also followed suit while schools have been closed for 30 days.

The president is expected to give more measures to be taken in order to curb the further spread.

The country has confirmed seven cases of the virus. The first case was confirmed on March 13.
