Mirren Guzzio started this petition to Plattsburgh City School District

Plattsburgh high school has just released their plans on how to properly have in person learning during the coronavirus pandemic. They are NOT making masks mandatory unless social distancing is not possible. While this may seem “good enough”, good enough doesn’t cut it when the situation at hand potentially risks people’s lives. As someone with asthma, who lives with someone with an immune disease I understand and truly feel the threat of this virus. I, and others like me, shouldn’t be adviced to seek the online education plan that they’ve suggested simply because they won’t take all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of students. People can catch the virus in the air regardless of distancing. It’s been proven that it can hang in the air for a long time after the infected person produces the infected droplets. That means that you can get it simply by walking through the same space, when not wearing a face covering. I deserve the right to the same educational experience as everyone else. My asthma shouldn’t prevent me from that, and others like me shouldn’t be facing this same extremely difficult and dangerous choice. To make our PHS community feel safe, please MAKE MASKS MANDATORY. Students also shouldn’t have to provide a doctors note to opt out of in person learning. They should be able to, simply if they don’t think the plan is safe enough. It should be a personal choice not solely based on health.
