We need to keep our students and faculty safe! With the new outbreak of coronavirus we have seen numbers double overnight in New York City. This virus spreads really easily! The incubation period of the virus is around 14 maybe even 27 days so students who attend school and are coming back from break could potentially spread the virus without even knowing. This is not outside of the country anymore. It's in California, New York, Wisconsin, Florida, Washington, Massachusetts, D.C the list goes on. Even NYC has adviced to limit crowded subways even avoid. But what about the students who can't just simply walk to class and live in places like Brooklyn Queens Bronx etc. The train is filled with people and a high risk for spread. This puts students who have already preexisting respiratory conditions or weak immune systems at a higher risk. Older faculty at risk! Closing the school or even online classes will help prevent further spread and get control of the situation thats going on right now in NYC and other states. We should set a good example of how to make a good precautions decision without putting our students at a potential future risk. This petition is not due to panic or fear this is about prevention! Let's take to action and do whats right to help protect one another! Mind you if the school waits last minute and there is a confirmed case..students who have shared a dorm room with another classmate in the building could easily spread to other people when asymptomatic using like the bathroom connected to other rooms. I will continue to update on this.
