I have family members with a weakened immune system, there is no way I will ever put them at risk.

Making immunocompromised people attend classes so you can sell parking permits or keep funding up is obscene. You're playing with people's lives.

De densification is working to slow the spread of the virus. No reason to change it until Covid hospitalizations in Texas drops significantly.

We also need to see if they can lower tuition for those who choose to be online instead of in person.

I believe that densification would lead to negative circumstances

I'm signing this petition because the recent email states that the professors can stop recording classes to force students to attend physical classes and that is such an ableist decision! Highly disappointed. Recording classes always helps the students. ALWAYS

They have not interpreted the data correctly. The reason COVID is down in utd is because of de densification. If we stop, COVID goes back up.

This will just cause us to go completely virtual, which I don't want

I have an autoimmune condition and a new baby in the family, who isn’t even a month old. Getting COVID, even with the vaccine, would be devastating to my already delicate health and the health of my family. I shouldn’t have to choose between health and an education, especially when masks, social distancing, and the vaccine can’t be enforced by the university to mitigate the effect of COVID. It’s also disregarding the thousands of UTD students and faculty that have had COVID and whatever complications arose from this despite the university’s efforts, including Professor Nora Collins, who lost her life in November 2020 due to COVID. Apparently, the dozen people who tested positive every day are an acceptable risk for the university. We just have to hope the university doesn’t decide to consider our person and our families and friends an acceptable risk.
