Isabella Morrissette started this petition to Belmont University

We would like to request that the Belmont University’s administration make the executive decision to pull out of hosting the 2020 presidential debate. Belmont university is the only college that has not pulled out of hosting the 2020 presidential debate. While students are required to wear masks and fill out a daily “COVID-19 symptoms” survey, there is nothing requiring the visiting candidates nor their attending company to do the same. Many members of the White House have contracted COVID-19, which they will bring directly to campus. The Senate has put off working until mid October, and Belmont should follow in the footsteps of the other universities and pull out of the debate instead of forcing freshmen to leave campus and stay in a hotel. The debate is putting the entire community at risk and President Bob Fisher does not seem concerned that this event is disrupting our learning environment even more  and potentially causing a harmful outcome.
