MANILA, Philippines —Classes in all levels in the province of Camarines Sur which were suspended due to the effects of Tropical Depression “Usman” will resume on Jan. 7.

The suspension in Camarines Sur was made to “ensure the safety of everyone, especially of school children, and to give more time to their families to recover from the recent typhoon,” Gov. Miguel Luis Villafuerte said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
