The Education Ministry’s guidelines also said that students staying in hostels and dorms can either stay on campus or return to their hometowns respectively. However if students choose to remain on campus, they must report to the management of their institution and will still be subjected to the guidelines of the Movement Control Order.

Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Saleh Jaafar, the deputy director-general for the Higher Education Department gave the instruction in a letter sent to all higher-learning institutions today, advising students, teachers and members of staff to follow the guidelines of the ministry to combat the growing spread of Covid-19.
