Mujtahid Rahman started this petition to UCLA Students and Staff

As of the 3rd of March 2020, coronavirus cases have been confirmed in LA County; it is being called a “local public health emergency.” The virus spread into California over the last few weeks, and nothing has been done about it here yet. UCLA is a community in which students and staff are constantly interacting with one another, and in a space where we are all in such close proximity, the spread of the virus is made just that much easier.

This petition is a call to action. For the safety of UCLA students, staff, and the general UCLA community, we ask for classes to be canceled until further investigation is done on the state of the coronavirus in Los Angeles. Though it is towards the end of the quarter and final exams/assignments are taking place, we need to prioritize the health and safety of this community above all else. We cannot wait for an official statement of school closure by LA County to cancel classes. We cannot wait for the “first confirmed case” at the university. We ask UCLA to act and help fight against the spread of COVID-19 as quickly as possible, and before it is too late.
