The measures include postponing weddings, reduction of members by church groups during meetings and discouraging partying at funerals.
Others are reducing crowds during holy mass and confession sessions.
Reading a statement to the media at St. Vincent Pastoral Centre,Bishop Joseph Mairura Okemwa instructed the faithful to confine funeral ceremonies to family members.
He further banned preparation of food and partying at the funerals saying it will compromise hygienic standards.

He appealed to the people not to panic but support current efforts by the government to contain the covid -19 disease assuring them of a break through in the crisis.
