SUNGAI BULOH: The use of face masks on school premises, be it indoor or outdoor, is no longer mandatory, says Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.
Through a video clip on his official Facebook page on Saturday (Sept 10), he said, however, the use of face masks was still encouraged in schools, especially in crowded places.
"In addition, students who travel by school bus are reminded to wear them at all times.
"Most importantly we must ensure the school environment is safe," he said.
Radzi added that more information regarding the use of face masks in schools would be included in a media statement to be issued on Saturday.
He said this following the announcement by the Health Ministry on Wednesday (Sept 7) which stipulated that the wearing of face masks inside buildings was now up to individuals. - Bernama
