In a memorandum issued on Sunday, January 19, Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas said the suspension covers all levels in all public and private schools in the entire province.
Taal Volcano has been under Alert Level 4 since the evening of January 12, the day it started erupting.
Alert Level 4 means a hazardous eruption is "imminent" or could occur "within hours to days." This eruption, if it happens, would be potentially deadly and destructive. (READ: Taal Volcano's 2020 eruption: What we know so far)
