Bars and restaurants will now be expected to close at 11pm, Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe has announced.
The move is effective next week, he added.
The directive comes amid confusion over whether the establishments could operate past 7pm after President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted the curfew on Wednesday.
However, CS Kagwe maintained that other Covid-19 protocols including handwashing and sanitisation at bars and restaurants are still in place.
He was speaking during a press conference on Thursday, where he urged Kenyans to continue following his Ministry’s rules on safeguarding against coronavirus spread.
On whether night travel will now be allowed, the CS said the Ministry of Transport will give direction on this.
He urged Kenyans to go for Covid-19 jabs, adding that Kenya will soon receive 500,000 J&J vaccines.
