The number of people attending burials has been limited to 100, while only 50 people may attend weddings – these are the new measures announced by the Interfaith Council for Covid-19 response. At burials, only 15 people will be allowed at the graveside and the burial service must be 1 hour in length, with no food served. Connie Kivuti, the council’s vice chairperson, has said the move to impose stricter guidelines was prompted by the number of new Covid-19 cases and the number of daily deaths.
