Re: Are you still practicing social distancing?
Not good. People have lost hope that the government will rescind orders anytime soon, so they're taking matters into their own hands.
For example:
It's not just that orders aren't being rescinded it's that there is no plan being communicated to us. People are realizing that the government has no real ideas about this and they are starting to use  their own judgment. I can see the frum communities approaching the govt with their own local opening up plans rather than waiting for it to trickle down.

Re: Are you still practicing social distancing?
I don't get this at all. Were people only practicing social distancing because the government told them to do it?
Of course not, but it seems that the curve has been flattened and there still is no plan to move on in a safe and thought out manner. Not sure what the issue is but people are beginning to think they just can't get their act together.

Re: Are you still practicing social distancing?
If everyone would practice social distancing, there would be no need for a lockdown anymore, nor in the future. People letting their guard down with regards to SD will lead us right back into the lockdown (whenever this one is finally lifted).

It's unfortunate that somehow they're conflated.
We've been in a lock down for far longer than originally posited. SD is going to be normal for a long time, but there is no intent to move us out of the lockdown phase. That is why people are doing their own thing. At what point can you mix with your own family? Not for another year?  And look at how other countries are moving forward. The US of A cannot get anything happening?!

Re: Are you still practicing social distancing?
If mixing with family will be putting them and you at risk then you canít mix. What does the policy of the government have to do with the equation? How can this possibly be political?

Itís a bit unfair to blame the government for not knowing what the future will hold, they didnít exactly invent this virus and couldnít have known exactly where we would be in the future any more than you could.
Do you think the lockdown should continue indefinitely now that we are over the peak?

Re: Are you still practicing social distancing?
Define lockdown? The exact rules that NJ has put in place till now? Probably not, but Iím not a doctor. I donít think itíll stay the same for too much longer anyway.
There is no reason why testing and isolating cannot be in place already.  Are we a third world nation? There seems to be no will to get things moving. That is what people are upset about. I am not talking about covidiots here.

Re: Do you know someone who has had Coronavirus after Pesach?
Yes but now if a patient comes in with muscle aches or a low fever thereís an incentive for a doctor to order a covid test for the patient. Nothing wrong with that. Just something to factor in to the numbers.
And factor in that people who aren't sick at all are looking for info regarding their status. I'm planning to test everyone in my family.

Re: yeshivas that are open
I can confirm similar instances in Jersey Shore before pesach from nurses as well as admin including senior admin. That sentiment has changed significantly since pesach, however, and the the sheer number of frum patients in those medical facilities before pesach which gave rise to chashash aiva is no longer a concern.
I can confirm first hand as well.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Rabbonim Ban All Minyanim Due To COVID-19 (Split Topic) I always wondered about the politics and machinations during the time of the Churban. I mean how could people play around like that when people were starving? I feel like this is the saddest part of the whole Corona tragedy. Everyone is sure that they are right and acting l'shem shamayim...and we end up with this.

Re: Do you know someone who has had Coronavirus after Pesach?
Not enough people to test?
No. I went with five people and they didn't want to test us.
