Amelia Myers started this petition to Temple University

This is a student petition for Temple University to close classes on main campus and transition into online classes. Temple is a school with a large population of international students, as well as students who have traveled for spring break. 

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, it would be safest for us to act proactively instead of reactively. By cancelling classes we can slow the spread and mitigate the damage caused by the virus. Even though most students may be young and healthy, not everybody on campus is. There are immunocompromised and elderly faculty as well as students on campus. There are even more students coming home to elderly loved ones, who could potentially be infected.

To protect the health and safety of everyone on campus, it's only logical to cancel classes and transition online for the time being.
