NILAI – All classes at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) campus here have been postponed today due to the haze.
Its deputy vice-chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni) Prof Datuk Dr. Hassan Basri Awang Mat Dahan said the decision was made after the Air Pollutant Index (API) reading in Nilai exceeded 200, which indicated very unhealthy air.
Classes would be replaced at a suitable time, he said in a statement here today.
He said classes would resume to normal from Thursday after the Malaysia Day public holiday until further notice by the university.
He advised staff and students of USIM to take the necessary health precaution against the haze, like staying indoor and to wear face mask when outdoor, as well as drink a lot of water.
