SEREMBAN: Four schools in Negri Sembilan were ordered to close for two days after Covid-19 cases were reported on Monday (April 26) morning, says a state Education Department official.
This is to allow the authorities to carry out sanitisation works at the affected schools which are in the Seremban, Port Dickson, Jempol and Kuala Pilah districts.
“The schools will be closed today (April 26) and tomorrow and reopen on Wednesday," he said when contacted.
