THE week-long school holiday, which is scheduled to end this week, has been extended until March 31 in view of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the extension of the holidays was in line with the Movement Control Order (MCO) which ends on the same day, The Star reported.
“So our order is for parents who are with their children during the holidays to continue staying on in their kampung until March 31,” he said in a press conference today.
The decision was made to minimise movement of people during the MCO period imposed from March 18 to 31.
