The question wasn't what he would've said. More, if he gave the same guidance, would he be listened to?
You were saying that people not listening isn't lack of leadership. I was wondering if that's true.
I have zero knowledge of the CH situation, just questioning the general statement that people not listening is not a lack of leadership.

A Rebbe and the "leadership" in discussion are not in the same stratosphere

I’d also like to hear people’s opinions/perspectives of what the Rebbe’s approach here would be.

Lol, we definitely need more of people pontificating on what the Rebbe would have said, and when that contradicts what he actually did say, explanations of what he really meant to say.

In your opinion, if the Rebbe were alive, would there be the same issue?

I don't understand the premise of this question.

Seriously, I have no clue. I'm inclined to say no, but there were plenty of times when people ignored the Rebbe's begging and pleading regarding different things. People will be moser nefesh and go to the ends of the earth to help a fellow Yid, but at the same time struggle with day to day ahavas yisroel that requires slight behavioral changes.

I've got very few issues with the way CH rabbonim and doctors handled Covid. But if the people aren't following, are they really leading?

How can you lead a community that refuses to be lead? IOW, the issue is not leadership, it's followship. And I believe that stretches far beyond CH. People think if the Rabonim would only issue clear directives, everyone would follow. This has proved wrong time and time again, even unrelated to Covid. How many people are active on this very forum belong to communities in which internet is verbotten?

I know this is stretching way beyond the scope of this thread, but it is DDF after all.

Or...lack of leadership?

I can speak to CH only, and while you can say there is a leadership problem that predates Covid, the (unified!) Beis Din has been abundantly clear since day 1, but has been vilified and mocked by people unhappy that BD statements didn't fit their agenda. As for the medical leadership, they have been stuck between the rock of advocating restrictive guidelines that will actually protect the community and the hard place of talking to a ginned-up public hostile to any regulation whatsoever thanks to the reasons stated above.

Will Israel accept a NAAT?
No clue, it was just a conversation I had with someone yesterday about a relative of theirs.

There is an online application form for an exception from negative PCR test requirements

Thanks, I forwarded that to them. Not sure if they knew about it.

Do we know if they knew they were positive, or if they were just too lazy to test? Not that it makes it okay, but less malicious...

And then there are those like someone I just heard of yesterday who had covid more than a month ago, is still testing positive, and trying to get back to Israel. If he finds out of a way to forge a negative (AFAIK he isn't looking, this is hypothetical), he'd still be included in this story even though it's not even close to as being as covidiot and malicious as described.

It is mind-boggling that chumra of the month club extends to everything besides COVID. Would love to hear a cogent explanation for it.

IMHO, it's a confluence of many factors, which all affect each other. Covid became a political football in the most partisan political environment that our communities were deeply involved in an unprecedented way, a masked person, for instance, is viewed as a Biden voting Libtard; historic distrust of politicians; distrust of public health officials due to initial incompetence, unnecessary deaths in first waves due to awful care, lack of clear, cogent, practical guidelines coming of the first wave; hypocrisy and double standards in guidelines and enforcement; conflating covid rules with gzeiras shmad of years gone by; to an extent, all communities have segments of noncompliance which are highlighted and stick out more when it is frum Jews; probably others I'm forgetting.

This is not an excuse of why are doing what we are, it's a partial explanation of why people are behaving in ways they shouldn't be.

Likes over Glatt Bite should help your BMI.

There's no difference overall. The bites build up in the belly and its surounds, but the likes head straight to the head.
