KSNT: UK students plan strike over rising COVID cases

 As positive COVID-19 cases rose to 546 on University of Kansas's campus last week, student organizing group the Jayhawk Liberation Front began organizing a student strike demanding a campus closure. Local NBC affiliate KSNT reports that students participating in the strike would not show up for scheduled classes or, in the case of online classes, not log on and email their professors informing them of their participation in the strike.

The petition demanding closure specifically calls out campus leadership for endangering the health of not only students on campus, but the surrounding community as well. Demands also include free exit testing, housing for students in need, and hazard pay for those who have to work.
