The novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 started in a wet market in Wuhan, China. This has now spread to over 110000 people around the globe, and caused over 3,500 deaths, both totals higher than the SARS and MERS epidemics of the past. This virus can stay in the body for two weeks or more without showing symptoms, but with you still spreading it to other people. In the light of the new information that there are currently 14 know cases of COVID-19 In Oregon, many of those being in or around the Beaverton school district. The known cases of COVID-19 Doubled in 24 hours, and may do so many times more, Arising the possibility of a serious public safety threat. We are asking Don Grotting, the superintendent of the Beaverton School District to close schools around the district to prevent spreading of this virus. Since this virus may lay dormant for two weeks or even more in some cases, during passing period, lunch, and other crowded times the virus will inevitably infect people growing the infection rate exponentially and the students will pass the virus on to their parents who will pass it on to their colleagues and so on. All of this happening without knowledge. So by the time that the BSD finds a case and closes the school, the person may have had up to 27 days to infect people! Considering this, we request that Beaverton School District that they close all schools and facilities as to slow infection rate and keep students, their families, and everyone safe.
