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.
In her letter, Governor Waiguru noted that despite putting in place guidelines while allowing operations to continue, it has not yielded much results as needed.
The result has however been the opposite as more cases are being reported with the number of infections rising every day thus the closure.
Members of the County Assembly will soon be issued with a programe on how operations of the assembly will be done during this period.
