Jesse Sanchez started this petition to Texas State University and

Texas State University has implemented "Roadmap to Return" which has implemented measures that do prevent the spread of the novel Covid-19. This is great on the University's end as it is placing in mind the health and safety of Bobcats. But, at the end of the day, this is a virus in which we have no cure, no widely accessible treatments, and no way to contain. 

Being said, it is our responsibility as Bobcats and the San Marcos community to stop the rapid spread of the novel virus. In order to completely ensure there is NO spread what so ever, Texas State University MUST transition to online classes for the Fall 2020 semester.

As known by the students, the level of education is not the same online as it is in person, but to compromise the health of students at all is unacceptable. As stated in a recent University Star article by Angela Guerro," In a 2017 poll... 72% of college students had problems finding health insurance...", which incurs close to a $6,000 potential expense to the students, the cost of Remdesivir, not including the hospital bill.

This petition demands the following from Texas State University and President Denise Trauth to prevent and stop the spread of the novel Covid-19 disease.

First, a complete online transition for the Fall 2020 Semester. If needed to start later in order to allow Professors to accommodate to the changes.

Second, a reduction in the cost of tuition by not charging students for fees regarding facilities that will not be in use. Examples include the Student Recreation Center, the cost of Maintenance for Dining Halls, etc..

Thirdly, implement a University-wide policy ensuring those who do not want to continue their education online, but want to immediately resume in person when safely able to do so, such as being potentially vaccinated, are able to reapply without readmission or extra cost to them.

To close this, I remind the San Marcos Community and Texas State Community that there is no cure for this disease, there is no way to stop the spread and there is no affordable treatment available. It is our responsibility to stop the spread and flatten the curve.
