Juliana Zeng started this petition to Purchase college students, faculty, staff

Recently, the spread of coronavirus has caused an increasing concern from the students of SUNY Purchase college. As of March 7th, 2020, there are 70 confirmed cases in Westchester, and many more in self-quarantine waiting to be tested. Our school is located right at the epicenter. Many course policy on campus do not allow students to miss class even if they are sick, some even result in failing grade after two absences. This result in students coming to classes even when they are sick, which also put other students at risk.

We urge the school to close campus and suspend classes, possibly starting online courses. Please consider this urgent and sincere request from our students.
