Arizona is now one of the newest international hotspots for Covid-19. There are many factors that have helped the spread of Covid. Unfortunately all we can do in public spaces is social distance, wear a mask, and HOPE others do the same. One place that we have the power to slow the spread of the coronavirus, is in our schools. Great Hearts Academies’ return policy encourages students to wear masks, will not be closing the school if a student or teacher contracts Covid-19, and suggests that the only way to transmit the virus is by people touching unclean surfaces, and then touching their faces. We can start making Great Hearts safer during this time by pushing Erik Twist to REQUIRE, not ENCOURAGE masks inside our schools. The main reasons for this are:

1) The probability of a person contracting the coronavirus from someone else if both people are wearing masks, is 1.5%.

2) Choosing not to wear a mask does not prevent someone from contracting the coronavirus, it prevents them from spreading it. Not wearing a mask is a selfish choice that could result in  someone losing their life. 

3) They ask us to wear dress shoes and a uniform every day, what’s so hard about wearing a mask?

Unfortunately, due to comments made by students and parents, it is clear that many people do not plan to wear masks if they don’t have to. Sign this petition to push the President of Great Hearts, Erik Twist, to require masks inside the school at all times. Great Hearts is currently saving themselves a few complaints by not taking sides, and not enforcing masks. This does not show their true virtue or the “truth, beauty and goodness” that they pride themselves in. Let’s push them to put the well being of their students and families OVER pleasing everyone by not taking a stance. To do whatever is possible to save someone’s life should not be a political issue, it should be a given.
