KWS also insisted wearing face masks, maintaining physical distance and washing hands or use of hand sanitiser is mandatory while in their facilities.

“Visitors are welcome to Zuru our parks, reserves and sanctuaries for a memorable experience. We thank you for your continued support,” the statement concluded.

KWS has previously announced the closure of all picnic sites and other sites in Parks, Reserves and Sanctuaries where visitors have a tendency to congregate in the five disease infected areas.

The directive affected sites in Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Kiambu and Nakuru counties.

In a statement, KWS said all National Parks, Reserves and Sanctuaries would remain open from 6 am, with an adjusted closing time of 5 pm with strict observance of Ministry of Health Covid-19 protocols.

KWS had stepped up measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in National Parks and Reserve in line with the 15th Presidential Address on Coronavirus pandemic.
