The Department of Education on Tuesday night belied supposed "news updates" claiming it and the Commission on Higher Education had suspended classes up to Friday, August 10.

Both agencies follow a new Malacañang guideline which leaves class suspensions up to local government units.
As early as Tuesday morning, LGUs such as the Marikina City government announced the suspension of classes for Wednesday.

By Tuesday afternoon, Parañaque and Muntinlupa also announced the suspension of classes for Wednesday. — Carmela Lapeña/RSJ, GMA News
