Deeply Concerned started this petition to North Greenville University

At the beginning of the Fall 2021 semester, North Greenville University adopted a policy that respected individual choice in regard to the wearing of masks. However, due to an increase in positive tests, North Greenville recently began requiring masks in all indoor spaces on campus. We are asking the University to revert to its original policy and instead allow individuals to make their own decisions regarding masks, consistent with the “Notice of Risk” that the entire NGU community has been made aware of.  

While we understand that different people have different views related to masks, we strongly believe that masks are not neutral and can have serious negative effects on the mental and emotional health of students. Masks also greatly interfere with students ability to learn in the classroom. We humbly ask that the University reconsider its mask mandate and that students (and staff and faculty) once again be permitted to make their own decisions to protect their health. Other universities have taken such an approach and have simply stated that students may be exposed to the virus on campus and should take whatever precautions they deem necessary. North Greenville’s Notice of Risk has the same effect, so no further mandates should be necessary.
