According to the CS the countries have either reported declining figures or have few transmissions in their community.
Once in the country, they will use their air tickets as proof if they are within curfew hours before proceeding to their various destinations.
The same thing applies to the taxi drivers operating during this time in order to avoid inconveniences with the police implementing the order.
CS Macharia noted that the list will be reviewed now and again and that the same standards will apply to Kenyans flying outside the country.
