Shutdown the University of Waterloo campus temporarily due to COVID-19

This petition made change with 2,858 supporters!

We would like the University of Waterloo to suspend all activities and events on campus as the spread of COVID-19 is accelerating. The students and faculty of the university are especially vulnerable to the spread of the virus as many of them rely on public transit. Furthermore, there was a potential case of the COVID-19 at the PDAC mining conference in Toronto this year where many students and faculty members were in attendance. We believe that to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19 for the university population of roughly 40,000 people, all on-campus activities should be indefinitely suspended. Students and faculty should not have the additional stress of the COVID-19 along with succeeding in university.  When dealing with a Pandemic the university should consider the health and lives of its faculty members and student along with the rest of the population that resides in the Region of Waterloo and suspend all campus activities and classes. Although mortality rates among the younger demographics are low, the risk increases with age and hence stopping the spread of the virus is still critical. Please sign this petition if you believe in this cause.
