The coronavirus pandemic has taken the world by storm. The virus is spread through the aerosol route. It is thought to have originated from Wuhan China and is still spreading. There have been reports of morbidities, mortalities, and adverse effects on world economies. Currently, the virus is in Kenya and the numbers of those infected are rising on a daily basis.
The Ministry of Health is working to sensitize the masses on methods of reducing the rates of transmission in order to flatten the curve. The food industry is a crucial contributor to the growth of the Kenyan economy. The food industry has service at the core of its function where it caters to revelers who meet up to unwind, network, and relax. This reality makes the foodservice industry an easy framework to increase the transmission of the virus within the Kenyan populace.
The entry of the virus cases in the Kenyan community had led to the closure of the outlets. However, in a bid to salvage the crumbling economy, there is a bid to reopen the establishments. This Seven-part series expounds the reopening requirements as outlined by the Kenyan Ministry of Health. If adhered to, these guidelines can greatly support the ministry's effort of reducing the number of COVID-19 infections in Kenya.
To ensure that all those in the food industry run the facilities according to the laid-out Ministry of Health guidelines, the ministry expects everyone in the industry to be trained and to adhere to the laid-out regulations.
