After Xavier University, 4 more more private schools in Cagayan de Oro suspended classes due to fear of A(H1N1) virus. Corpus Christi and Lourdes College followed XU after it suspended classes. Just yesterday, Pilgrim Christian College and Rosevale School decided to suspend classes too after some students showed signs of flu symptoms. So far no deaths have been reported due to A(H1N1).
As a precaution, disinfection of the campuses followed to eliminate possible presence of the virus in the area. Because of the suspension, most students went to the malls to relax instead of self-quarantine.
Even without a confirmed case of A(H1N1), private schools can suspend classes at their own discretion.
