LOS BAÑOS, Laguna — Several cities and municipalities in Batangas and Laguna provinces have suspended classes in all levels, private and public, amid concerns over the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). Announcements were made and memos were posted on social media this week.

There are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in both provinces but the local government units are taking preventive measures like disinfecting schools to avoid possible contamination.
