Voi Primary School in Taita Taveta County was on Wednesday closed after three teachers tested positive for COVID-19.
Confirming the news, County Education boss Simon Wanjohi said 27 other teachers have since been put on quarantine while the school’s 300 students have been sent home.
Mr. Wanjohi said it was difficult to conduct testing for all the students due to lack of enough coronavirus testing kits, adding that the county government is presently liaising with the Ministry of Health on how to undertake the process.
The situation at Voi Primary School has however caused panic at the nearby Mwakingali Primary School.
