As many of us know, due to the wide and continuing spread of the dangerous COVID-19 virus and California being the second most infected state with the COVID-19 virus with a rising number of cases reported in the United States of America and many cases within the state of California. according to the CDC.  As students at California State University San Marcos, we NEED to take active precautions for our health and wellbeing as it is a priority especially at this critical time. It is also expected by researchers that this virus will not be cured anytime soon. With that being said, it is not suitable to engage in regular classwork activities that could put students of our campus potentially at risk of getting infected, given that we are in a crowded campus where the weather nowadays is increasing the fast spread of the virus. Given that we do not want to be held back from our academic work and achievements, we propose that our university officials could kindly take into consideration changing all in class courses to online courses as we are feeling neglected in terms of our health safety as other universities and academic institutions have already made numerous initiatives across the country. UCSD and SDSU have resorted to the temporary cancellation to all of the in person classes and substituting them with online classes due to the virus outbreak. Countries all around the world are also either delaying school attendance or finding a more flexible approach such as changing the class methods of teaching to online methods. Furthermore, we are feeling emotionally distressed, frightened, anxious and hesitant to leave our homes and attend a compacted environment which for some us, is affecting our academic performance. Please consider this request as the situation has surpassed from being a local virus to a global health hazard that could potentially put our lives at risk.
