Due to the large amount of international students at Babson College and the travel that takes place over Spring Break to high risk areas, Babson should take more precautionary measures to prevent a major outbreak on campus. Babson should do this for the general health of their student body and faculty. Babson has taken great steps in informing its populace on the dangers of COVID - 19 and the risk that it poses to its community. In this unique situation, Babson should take preventive steps in students returning to campus and risking the spread of the virus. 

Babson has the infrastructure in place to move classes to WebEx as the school has done in the past for snow days. It is imperative that Babson gives students and faculty alike the freedom to take precautions on their own about their safety with guidance from Babson and healthcare officials. Many family members of the Babson students are highly at risk for complications due to the virus. 

As schools around Babson have already closed, and many other colleges move to online classes, Babson should follow in prioritizing the health of the community. As the virus is currently following a logistic curve with an unclear inflection point, the spread and impact of the virus is completely unknown. During times like these, it is imperative that caution be exercised. As a student at Babson, I feel like it is my duty to have the voice of the community heard in this unfamiliar situation.
