KUALA LUMPUR, 5 February – Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) will continue to oversee the implementation of the Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in all 55 MARA Junior Science Colleges (MRSM) across the country following the emergence of a new Covid-19 cluster at MRSM Tawau, Sabah recently.

In a statement today, Mara Chairman Datuk Seri Azizah Mohd Dun said 140 students from the cluster were still under quarantine due to infection, while students who had recovered were allowed to return.

“We are constantly monitoring the condition of our students who are still in the MRSMs, particularly those who will be taking the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) exam in the second week of February,” she said.

Meanwhile, she said MARA has advised students who have not yet been vaccinated to complete their vaccination ahead of upcoming enrollment in 2022 to help stem the spread of the infection.

“Parents are also advised not to worry and if they have any concerns, continue to keep in touch with the university administration to ensure that exam children remain calm and stress-free,” he added. — Bernama
