The novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 started in a public market in Wuhan, China. This has now spread to over 85,000 people around the globe and has caused almost 3,000 deaths, both totals higher than the SARS and MERS epidemics of the past. This virus can stay in the body for two weeks or more without showing symptoms, but over this incubation period, the virus can still be transmitted to others.

Many infected individuals may spread the virus without their knowledge. Many students may be infected and may bring transmit this virus into school and other public spaces. The incubation period is too long (over two weeks) to know the extent of the infection rate at this time.

At this very moment of OUTBREAK happening in a such crowded City like NYC, we needs to perform quarantines as best as we can achieve, avoid unnecessary contacts, and start to practice remote learning through entire university system. 

Considering this, we urge the Pratt Institute main campus to make the responsible decisions to close campus and facilities as to slow infection rates and keep students, their families, and everyone safe.
