Re: Corona virus and your shull
Heard from a friend in West Hempstead that shuls will close down there as well.

What he should have said - "If you are in quarantine, and you've come to shul against the law, you have the din of a Rotzeach! Leave Now!
I know someone who had recently returned from Italy and developed a cough and fever. A few of his kids had fever too, and THEY DID NOT GO TO THE DOCTOR BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WANT TO QUARANTINE. Highly irresponsible. Extremely selfish as there are many many people who this virus can be deadly for. His claim was that its no big deal, his family all recovered from it, and they did not get very sick. People need to realize that this is not about you. Its about all other people you are potentially KILLING because you did not want to quarantine. Sickening.

Re: Is your community an overall plus or minus during this crisis?
In NJ?
Brooklyn. NJ isnt testing? Thats why Lakewood has no cases...

Re: What are we going to do Chol Hamoed?? [UPDATE: And with kids home from school?]
Congratulations, you made it through day 1. Let's see how we're doing in a week. :P
Everyone should share how they made it through day one, and we can all do each others ideas. Should keep going for a few days at least. (I hope....)

Re: How many hours of 'remote' school do your kids have?
I'll start with one of my children:

Neighborhood 5 Towns/Far Rockaway
School Yeshiva Darchei Torah
Boy or girl Boy
Grade 4th grade
Time per day Limudei Kodesh: 45 minutes
Time per day secular studies: 20 minutes + some homework
Teleconference or Zoom: Teleconference (they are not using Zoom because 'they discourage internet use' :-\ )

While I understand that this has been a hectic week for everyone, it feels like the school is doing the bare minimum and wiping their hands clean (no pun intended) by thinking an hour of so is acceptable.

What do you think is acceptable? How is your kids school handling this?
I wonder if it is possible at all to do longer. Many parents have only one phone, with many kids in school needing it, so the school needs to alternate timings. In addition keep in mind the teachers have kids at home too. Im not saying the schools are doing enough, just pointing out the situation is hard for everyone.

Re: Weddings in next few weeks
It would be much harder for them if something ch"v happens to, lets say, a grandparent from them not being careful enough.
While this is true, put yourself into their shoes for a minute. Imagine you are the choson getting married. This is once in a lifetime for you. You dreamt of this day from the day you were born. Wouldnt you be disappointed? I applaud each and every one of such chasunos as it is absolutely the right thing to do in such a time. But I cannot imagine how tough it is for them.

What were your isolation activities today? I will start.
1- Worked on my life insurance policy, which I started BEFORE corona.
2- Looked into unemployment options for the time being, seeing as I am not getting paid.

How about you?

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against CIVID-19?
I pray that youíre right. What happens when workers donít show up or thereís an infection at these plants ? Todayís rationing was on kosher chicken, eggs, & bounty.
As per a family member who is a food distributor for a major kosher company. THERE IS ENOUGH FOOD AND CHICKEN. The problem is the hoarders. If someone buys 50 packs of chicken (true story, I saw the wagon) of course stores won't have enough! The companies can't make deliveries fast enough, so we see shortages

Re: What grade do you give Trump so far for his handling of COVID-19?
Thats true, but there were a lot of medical professionals that werent  taking it seriously either which is at least partly why he wasnt
Whatever this president does, will be viewed negatively.

Anything like this in BP? My parents and siblings are in quarantine.
Try chaveirim. I saw them advertise for a few locations, so they might be doing BP as well.

Re: Tweets, Pictures, And Videos That Are Coronavirus Related
Ouch. Isn't it funny how during the Black Plague they blamed us since very few jews got infected, and now when majority jews are infected they are blaming us again?
