PETALING JAYA: A primary school in Kampung Padang Che Mas, Baling, Kedah, has been closed until the end of October, as the village will be under conditional movement control order (MCO) beginning Sunday (Oct 18).
In a statement on Friday (Oct 16), the Education Ministry said the closure of SK Dalam Wang until Oct 31 would involve 22 staff and 214 pupils.
"Throughout the whole closure, the school administration has been instructed to ensure that teachers and pupils continue with teaching and learning at home.
"The manual for teaching and learning at home can be downloaded via the ministry's official portal at www.moe.gov.my," it said.
It made the announcement following Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob's statement earlier in the day that a conditional MCO would be enforced for two weeks starting Oct 18 in Kampung Padang Che Mas, Baling, Kedah.
He said the National Security Council (NSC) made the decision after 25 people in the village were found to be infected with Covid-19.
