53 schools in Negri closed on Thursday (Sept 19)


SEREMBAN: All 53 schools in Nilai, Labu and Mantin will remain closed on Thursday (Sept 19) due to bad haze.

The state Education department said the decision was made as the area continued to register very unhealthy API readings.

"Since the API was beyond 200 at 5pm today, the department has decided to close the affected schools tomorrow," it said in a statement.

Schools in Nilai have been closed since Tuesday (Sept 17).
