With the coronavirus outbreak in the United States occurring, there is the worry that coming back from Spring Break vacations could spread the virus at college campuses. This is shown by the fact that Princeton University has now taken the same action until Sunday, April 5th, and having their students stay home for virtual instruction.

In California, the Santa Clara County Health Department, the health department that runs San Jose suggests that citizens stay away from events where they can be within an arm's length on each other.

With all of this advice, we petition WVU, President Gee, and the Board of Governors, to shut down in-campus classes, keep students home, and have virtual classes after spring break.
