Megan Koster started this petition to GAPP and

Due to the prevalence of the corona virus, GAPP (The German American Partnership Program) was decided to be one-ended. German students will not be able to experience the life and culture of the Americans. This consensus was made out of concern and should urgently be reconsidered. If the German students are unable to visit America, they will not be able to immerse themselves in the experiences of traditional Midwest American lives.

Secondly, the virus, though many cases have been found, only few have resulted in fatalities. None of which are actually teens, which is the target demographic of this exchange. Thus, students have no susceptibility to the virus and are not threatened whatsoever by the recent sickness. Even so, protection is as simple as packing a bottle of hand sanitizer. 

With this decision to not allow German students entry to America to stay with their host families, both German and Americans students are devastated  for the cancellation of the long anticipated arrival to Chicago in 3 weeks. With this petition, I intend to revive the German students trip to America, as the corona virus poses no threat to the incoming students. Please join as we reassure the parents and teachers of Schyren-Gymnasium that their students do not face any risk upon their arrival in America.
