Cambodia allows students in capital, Siem Reap city to take early vacation to curb outbreak

Cambodia’s Ministry of Education on Saturday issued a statement allowing all public and private school students in capital Phnom Penh and Siem Reap city to take an early vacation in a bid to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

The early vocation starts from March 14, the statement said.

The short-term vacation for students is usually from April 6 to 20 of the year, but the ministry allowed the early holiday this year as the kingdom has subsequently detected Covid-19 cases on foreigners from different countries, it said.
