More Covid-19 cases have been reported at State House a month after four officers were confirmed to have contracted the virus.

As a result, officers have been moved to KICC, NHIF and Harambee Annex buildings, where they are working from.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has been operating from his Harambee House office — the Office of the President — from where he has been issuing national addresses on Covid-19.

Those working outside State House include accountants, human resource, procurement, administration and communication departments.

Those who have moved with him to the OP include State House Controller Kinuthia Mbugua and his lean support team.

Joseph Kinyua, the Head of Public Service, is also operating away from State House.

State House is still under lockdown, and no visitors are allowed in, thus forcing the President to hold meetings at Harambee House.

When the first cases were reported, State House said it had strengthened Covid-19 containment measures, and rolled out extra access protocols for staff residing outside the compound and visitors.
