Yihan Li started this petition to Office of the Chancellor and

Vanderbilt University should cancel classes and consider holding online classes for the upcoming weeks. There have been two confirmed cases in Nashville and our students are returning from all over the world after the spring break. It is at great risk to hold classes as normal because the novel coronavirus is contagious and airborne. Even though there has not been a confirmed case among our student body on campus, it would be too late to close the campus when there is one, as the deadly virus has a latent period for up to two weeks. Until now, many universities have decided to cancel classes and hold online classes, such as the University of Washington, University of Southern California, Stanford University, Rice University, and Columbia University. Therefore, we respectfully ask the Office of the Chancellor and the Dean of Students Office to cancel classes for the health and wellbeings of Vanderbilt students. Thank you for your support fellow commodores!
