Business owners who do not comply with the set guidelines, will have their premises closed.

The National Police, the IG said, will work closely with the National Government Administration officers and County Governments Enforcement Teams to ensure compliance with the health guidelines put in place to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

Those found contravening the said guidelines will be fined Sh20,000 on the spot.

Mutyambai ruled out arrests to avoid congestion in the cells.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) will also work with the police to cancel licences of motorists caught flouting curfew order.
