After hearing of the recent death in Walnut from coronavirus, it is in the best interest of the health of all staff and students for Walnut High School to close temporarily in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus to more people. Given that the age for many staff members and family members of staff and students are also within the risk range for death from the coronavirus, preventing the spread to students would also prevent possible deaths or severe injuries.

As a student attending Walnut High School, I may not be at the most risk of death to the coronavirus, but I do have many family members that could die because of their age. Combined with the cold and rainy weather projected for the next week, the coronavirus could become much more serious. If people with compromised immune systems, such as those fighting other illnesses because of the weather, come into contact with others infected with the coronavirus, they would also be at increased risk of death.

Though I understand that it is very difficult to quickly transition classes to an online equivalent, the fact stands that the coronavirus presents a very ubiquitous threat to both the school and the community outside of the school.
