Bob Smith started this petition to University of Portland

In-class instruction is vital to students receiving a quality education. Considering that the coronavirus is not currently active in Portland, there is no need to cancel classes. Doing so would spread unnecessary panic and prevent students from maintaining academic focus. Considering the fact that the death rate is extremely low across nearly all age groups and the vast majority of those at the university would not be largely affected by the virus, closure is unnecessary at the current moment. Students and faculty who believe themselves to be immunocompromised are more than capable of making the personal decision to remain at home and the entire student body should not be impacted by the needs of a small, select few.
