Maintain Mask Mandate on UH Campus

David Hartman started this petition to University of Houston and

The mask mandate is a necessary precaution to curtail the spread of the Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2). Despite Governor Greg Abbott's decision to open up Texas and repeal the statewide mask mandate, national CDC guidelines encourage citizens to continue social distancing and practice mask wearing in public spaces. Texas is still experiencing rates of infection ranging from 7,000-10,000 per day (as per the Texas Department of State and Health Services) and an average of approximately 200 deaths per day due to CoVid related illness.

Students and staff are currently in limbo while we wait for an official statement from the university. We should not be left waiting and wondering whether the mandate will continue for any amount of time. The university must act in the interest of its community's collective health. 

We need the mask mandate to continue on campus and within all facilities in order to prevent further loss of life and to protect at risk populations residing within the UH community.

Despite what policy UH decides to adopt, this petition will speak for us all and remind those in power to maintain the mandate until the majority of the UH community is vaccinated!
