Emily Provencher started this petition to President Saigo

This petition is to allow the residents on the Westfield State University campus to go into other dorms besides the one they live in. At the RA desk there would be a sign in sheet where residents would sign in their guests (much like they do for any guest who does not go to school here) and the guest would provide their name, phone number, and school email or campus wide ID number. This would be much more convenient for contact tracing as well as much safer. During the first week back on campus students are already entering halls they are not permitted into in secret. This could be a problem if someone were to test positive for Covid, but they were not truthful about the places they have been on campus. Students are much more likely to comply with a rule of having to sign in guests than they are to comply with the current rule of not allowing anyone from outside the dorm in, and if a person who unknowingly has Covid enters a dorm in secret, the residents of the dorm are at risk whereas if they are signed in the residents of that dorm could be notified. People are already gathering together without masks outside on the green as well as going into other dorms so why not give the students a safer option?
