UCSD Students started this petition to UCSD

The novel corona virus (COVID-19) poses a serious threat to students, faculty, their family members, and the surrounding San Diego community.  The World Health Organization has declared a global health emergency, and many countries are grappling with a rise in confirmed cases. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising people to be prepared for disruptions to daily life that will be necessary if the corona virus spreads within communities. The gathering of students should not continue being held, especially now that COVID-19 has been confirmed in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange County.

Although we appreciate UCSD’s decision to make class attendance optional for week ten, this effort should extend into all student gatherings including final exams to ensure the health and safety of our students. We are positive UCSD is capable of providing alternatives to in-person finals.

Other universities have already taken swift action. This negligence in the care for student health will prove disastrous if the administration does not take immediate action to cancel in-person lectures and finals immediately when other alternatives are present.
