The news was shared by the County Assembly Speaker who noted that the notice will take effect from Thursday 19th November 2020.

This will allow officials from the Ministry of Health fumigate the premise as well those affected to observe the laid guidelines from the ministry.

It is not yet known how many Members of the County Assembly (MCA) contracted the virus but those affected have been advised to self isolate as well as those who have come into contact with them.

The news also comes days after the County Governor Anne Waiguru issued an order to close the Assembly main office after several cases were reported.
