Force Universities to close commencing National Lockdown on November 5th 2020
Force Universities across the UK to close during the National lockdown in November. This should prevent further spread of the viral infection amongst students and enable Universities to put in place Safety Net policies and other procedures to protect student's grades and learning.
Closing universities during the National lockdown will not only help prevent the spread of the viral infection COVID-19 but will enable universities to put in place Safety Net policies and other procedures to safeguard student's grades. Many students are forced to remain isolated away from friends and families whilst universities remain open which could have devastating affects on their mental health. Contact hours are already sparsely limited, closing Universities is the responsible thing to do.
