Two more schools in Klang Valley closed after Covid-19 cases detected

PETALING JAYA: Two more schools in the Klang Valley are closed for sanitation and their students and staff placed under quarantine following the detection of Covid-19 cases.

A student at Confucian Private Secondary School tested positive for Covid-19, causing the school to be closed for the day for sanitation.

In a notice on social media, the school said all junior students would be learning from home while those from the affected class must be under home quarantine.

It said that the school’s mid-semester examinations, scheduled to begin on Friday (April 16), will also be postponed until further notice.

The school, located in Kuala Lumpur, added that co-curricular activities for April 16 and 17 will be moved online.

In Shah Alam, a Year Two pupil at SJK (C) Chung Hua Klang tested positive for Covid-19.

The school has issued a notice for all pupils and the class teacher of Class 2S to undergo quarantine for 10 days beginning Saturday (April 17) until April 26.

“Parents are urged to bring their children for a Covid-19 test, ” said the school’s headmistress Ing Kim Chua in a letter dated April 16.

According to an Education Ministry statement on Oct 9,2020, any school with even one positive case must close immediately for sanitisation, even if it has yet to receive the risk analysis report from the Health Ministry.

On March 21, Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin said any closure of schools, whether fully or partly, would be done on the advice of the district health office.

“Schools with positive Covid-19 cases detected will only be closed after a risk analysis and assessment, ” Bernama quoted him as saying after the Jelajah Malaysia Prihatin programme with parent-teacher associations in Perlis.
