COVID-19 Discussion Board / Re: Dropping Antibody Levels
« on: January 18, 2021, 02:46:53 PM »

"Most persons infected with SARS-CoV-2 display an antibody response between day 10 and day 21 after infection. Detection in mild cases can take longer time (four weeks or more) and in a small number of cases antibodies (i.e., IgM, IgG) are not detected at all (at least during the studies’ time scale)."

Does the same apply for getting the vaccine? will I have a quantitative antibody count 21 days after the second dose?

The sampler of Rechnitz's album is out.

First thing that struck me is that MBD is not on the album, an interesting first.
Finally Yaakov Shwekey was able to be on it. I think the hold up was when his producer was Yochi Briskman.

I'm considering a quick trip to Miami, but I'm a little hesitant to fly because I have a baby (under 6 months old). My main worry are the airports. On the way out, I'd be flying out of ISP on Long Island, so I'm not very concerned about the social distancing there because the airport is never busy. However, I'm flying into (and out of FLL). Has anyone recently flown into or out of FLL, specifically the SW terminal? How packed is it? Is social distancing being enforced, especially regarding the security lines?
I recently flew out of FLL and was not at all packed. Was plenty of space to keep separate from others if needed.

Does anyone know updated prices for off-site parking? I called Clarion and they charge $10 a day. Wanted to know if anyone knows the prices of other hotels there if there are any cheaper options. I need to park over the whole pesach.

Do you have a contact at the hotel who would be able to assist with using a personal pan for omlettes?

Also, would they be open to double wrapping salmon or tuna or making something special for someones dietary restrictions?
I didnt go during Corona, however, there was no need for a contact regarding the personal pan. The person at the egg station knows exactly what to do. There was a whole line of frum jews waiting there when we were there last January. I would imagine that they would be able to accommodate frying something else on your own pan there as well.

Have people had success trying to eat kosher or explain kosher to restaurants at Hyatt Ziva? Was there someone specific to speak to there who understood?
Yes the main breakfast area restaurant has some kosher products like the little cereal boxes. You can also bring your own pan and they were very accommodating with helping with making eggs. They had a bottle of kosher pam and allowed you to turn on fire, and keep separate from the rest of the food

Credit Cards / Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve

Just product change from freedom unlimited to CSR.

If use card tomorrow at grocery store, will it count as reserve or freedom? If reserve, then can use “pay yourself back” benefit.

Can I double dip on $300 travel credit in late 2020 and early 2021, while only paying one annual fee?
If showing up on your online account as a reserve then yes you will be able to utilize the reserve benefits even when swiping the physical freedom card.

The travel credit isnt by calendar year anymore but you can always double dip within your first annual fee by using $300 right when it resets and downgrading within 30 days of the next AF.

Excuse my ignorance, when is Yeshiva week this year?
I believe the weekend of the 23rd of January. Give or take days from the week prior or following.
