KUCHING, Nov 1: St Joseph’s International School here might be forced to close for seven days for sanitisation after one of its students tested positive for Covid-19.

According to a notice from St Joseph’s Private School to all parents of students at St Joseph’s family of schools dated today, a parent of the said student informed the school’s principal of the situation.

The notice revealed St Joseph’s International School might have to close for seven days for sanitisation from November 1 to 7.
