Covid-19: Four Negri schools ordered to close for two days

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.

Earlier on Monday, state education committee chairman Datuk Dr Mohamad Rafie Ab Malek said SJK (T) Nilai was ordered to close after a Covid-19 case was reported.

On April 23 (Friday), SMK Seremban 2 near here was ordered to close after 17 cases were reported in the school, and will remain closed until this Thursday (April 29).

Three cases were also reported at SMAP Labu on the same day but the school was not closed.

A total of 179 students have been sent to Institut Aminuddin Baki and the Higher Education Academy to be quarantined.
