Let's get to know the infamous Corona virus. After first contact with humanity in a wet market in Wuhan, China, the corona virus spread like wildfire. The virus, being strong and able to survive outside of a host for 48 hours, and being hidden in a host for two weeks, has already caused two deaths right here in the king county. In fact, the virus has a hot spot location in Washington State, with over thirteen cases positive for the COVID-19 and already two deaths. The lethal disease is covering up Washington state and its more important to stay safe now than ever.

Why should you close The Bear Creek School? It all comes down to the people of the school. Unlike other schools where  students all live in a small district around the school, Bear Creek scholars come from all around Washington state, from Renton, to Kirkland, to Snohomish to Sammamish. The COVID-19 virus can easily be transferred from person to person, city to city, when representatives from cities all over Washington meet at the bear creek school. Students from Kirkland and Snohomish could easily pass the malady to students who live in Bellevue and Redmond. Not only does this put the students in danger, as they are more likely to meet more people from parts of Washington where the virus thrives, and thus catch the virus; It also puts entire cities in danger as these people that meet here at the Bear Creek school will transfer the virus across the state of Washington, from city to city. We already have an example of this happening in Jackson High school, a school in Everett closed after a student was hospitalized for the virus. We should learn from the mistakes of Jackson and close school before any more students contract the fatal disease.

All in all, the COVID-19 has caused many deaths and the deaths would only increase if school was left open. The safety off students and people of Washington state is more important than learning material that can easily be caught up on in the future. Schools in large cities of China, eg. Beijing, shut down a month ago and its time for our school to close up as well. Jackson shut down a few days ago and its time for our school to close up as well.
