The novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 has now spread to over 89,000 people around the globe, and caused almost 3,000 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 SIX US death cases from COVID were in Washington State, King County, where the Lake Washington School District schools are, and there are more infections discovered with much, much more likely to come, we are asking Denise Juneau, the superintendent of the Lake Washington 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. Considering this, we request that Lake Washington School District that they close all schools and facilities as to slow infection rate and keep students, their families, and everyone safe.
