COVID-19: Labuan schools operating amid low student turnout

LABUAN: All 26 secondary and primary schools here are operating as usual amid the low turnout of students and teachers.

Labuan Education director, Khaziyati Osman said there had been no directive thus far from the Ministry of Education (MOE) to temporarily close the schools in view of the increasing COVID-19 cases here.

“We are imposing a strict standard operating procedure on teachers and students before entering the school compound, when teaching is being conducted and during the class breaks.
