KOTA KINABALU: Health authorities have ordered a secondary school here to close for two weeks for sanitisation and cleaning to be carried out after Covid-19 cases were detected there.

A notice to close SMK Agama Kota Kinabalu from Tuesday (April 13) to April 26 was issued at 10.30am by the district Health Department.

Sabah Health Department director Datuk Christina Rundi said the school had to be closed for sanitising works, as there were positive cases there.
