Close all MESA PUBLIC SCHOOLS because of COVID-19. Protect our Children!

This Petition is to close ALL MESA PUBLIC SCHOOLS because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Our kids and the staff members are taking the bus or commuting to school every day, contacting a lot people on the way and within schools. They are in a dangerous situation as we can't be sure the next case will be someone in MESA. Let us not wait for an individual to test positive but make sure we close schools before that happens. There are currently 9 confirmed cases in AZ (3/11/20) with possible community transmission. Alhambra Elementary School District has already made the right decision and closed as of today (3/12/20).

Don't wait for our children to get infected, let us take serious measure and close schools! Proactive closures (before anyone tests positive at the schools) are vastly more effective than reactive ones (after someone tests positive). Social distancing is key, and we need to move swiftly.
