Without divulging the number of infected individuals, Perak Education director Dr Mohd Suhaimi Mohamed Ali said both schools in the Kerian district would reopen on Nov 2.
"The closures are to allow cleaning and disinfection work to be carried out by the Health Ministry as well as the Perak Fire and Rescue Department,” he said in a statement here on Saturday.
This means that nine schools have been closed due to Covid-19 infections involving teachers and students.
The other seven schools are SMK Klian Pauh in Taiping; Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Klebang Jaya, SMK Aminuddin Baki, Chemor and SMK Dato Haji Mohd Taib in Ipoh; SK Tanah Kebun and SMK Raja Lope Nor Rashid, Parit Buntar as well as SK Lekir Batu 8 in Sitiawan, Manjung. - Bernama
