SEREMBAN (Sept 17): Schooling session in the Port Dickson district was suspended after the Air Pollutant Index (API) in the district had exceeded the 200 mark.

As at 8 am this morning, the API in the district had reached a very unhealthy level.

Chairman of the State Action Committee on Investment, Industry, Entrepreneurship, Education and Human Capital Dr Mohamad Rafie Ab Malek said students in all 63 schools in Port Dickson were not allowed to attend classes.

“However, teachers must attend school but must put on the face mask to protect them from the haze,” he said in a statement here today.

He added that the Negeri Sembilan Education Department would continue to monitor the situation and would make announcements from time to time.

As at 8 am this morning, two more districts in the state recorded unhealthy readings namely in Nilai (199) and in Seremban (174). - Bernama
