Deborah Good started this petition to UNIVERSITIES

My son is in his first year at university, which he’s making the best of despite all the restrictions and a less than ideal university environment.  However he found out today that although the government have said sport in educational settings is allowed, higher education is excluded.  Students are instead confined to their houses or halls of residence (where entertainment facilities have also been closed) to do their online lectures with no ability to let off steam.  Sport plays a huge part in the mental well being of teens and young adults in higher education.  It is a disgrace that they are not allowed to be able to participate in sport and  benefit from the positive effect this will have within their bubble.  The issue is heightened by the fact that all lectures and are online all tutorials are online. It is difficult to see what benefit the students derive from being at university.  The risk of serious mental health issues this poses is far more serious than the risk that COVID presents to this age group.  Please sign and share this petition so that the government have to reconsider their position on banning all sporting activities at places of higher education.
