This Petition is to close Kean University from all activities while the worry of the spread of coronavirus is still relevant.

The highly transmittable Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a threat to the health and well being of all Kean University student body and staff members, and Kean must take action to prevent on-campus spreading.
As of March 10th, 2020, More then 15 positive cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in NJ, including Union County. As of today, there was the first death in NJ from Coronavirus as well. Many other schools including Rutgers University, Monmouth University, Princeton University, and Rowan University have stepped up and taken action on their part of stopping spread of the coronavirus. The real number of cases might be higher, as the CDC had not provided sufficient test kits. With today’s technology, we will still be able to progress academically as well as keep everyone safe; our kids, our teachers, and all the administrative people in the school. We think surviving is the main priority now. Nearly 12,000 students and staff are at risk. Nothing is worth potentially exposing an entire body of students to this disease.

With the lack of testing, the extreme increase in infection rate, and the recent positive case in union county, President Dr. Dawood Farahi, the students of Kean University ask that you implement an online program for the rest of the year, ensuring the safety of your students.

Thank you again,
Kean University Students/Parents/Staff
