COVID-19 Discussion Board / Re: Lakewood covid cases
« on: Today at 12:17:21 AM »
maybe in a large tent there is room for the quarantiners to spread out in a safer manner than indoors (away from the positives? )

I'm sure there are ways to do it, but why? Making a minyan with people who are currently infected and anyone else is just a bad idea. Unless someone is confirmed positive, they should be considered "anyone else." I think there are probably enough confirmed positives and enough people in quarantine to make separate minyanim.

I was curious about this. If severity of covid depends on viral load, while someone is already fighting covid are they at further risk if exposed to another person who has covid?

My laymen's guess is no; but I have no idea.

I think the bigger question is on the people who are in quarantine due to exposure. Is exposing them further a good idea? I think these minyanim need to remember that exposed does not equal infected.

The silence on this historic moment in the Middle East by the MSM is deafening.

I don't know, I think it may be better this way. Israel doesn't need to be sharing headlines with the craziness in this country. Let them make peace quietly.

Tip of the iceberg
?s=20

This is one of those things I'd consider late. They relied on the Chinese, and then changed (too late) once they investigated for themselves.

Just to clarify: I've been on record here as not being a fan of the WHO. I'm still not a fan. But if it's independently verifiable, it's not wrong just because they said it, too.

That model involves letting the disease run its course quickly. Switzerland is starting to allow visits to LTC facilities while the rest of the world has seniors on a perpetual lockdown to the point that any administrator in a nursing home will tell you the residents have no will to live, nothing to live for, and no end in sight, and many are succumbing.

Which model?

I was beginning to think there was a second wave until the WHO claimed there was.

Generally the WHO gets things late, not completely wrong.

Curious, but not enough to really research it: what was Nashville's policy for bars and restaurants over the last 8 months?

That's the weirdest music! What is that genre called?

Who cares? You're not thinking about whatever stressed you out before... Success!

Does this include the dorm?

Quote
For those that will not be able to quarantine safely at home, the yeshiva will keep the Zal apartments open through Simchas Torah. We will provide food, sukkah and do whatever we can to make sure the boys are comfortable. Bochurim are required to adhere to the CDC guidelines and follow the quarantine rules. As per Dept of Health, having antibodies is not an exception.

**Its important to note that the DOH may be visiting homes to make sure your son is quarantining properly.

This is now true.

Shut down by the Health Department.

ETA: by virtue of the headline alone, I'm going to call this fake news.

May need to walk this back... Schools are sending out forms for families to fill out detailing where they'll be over yomtov, along with a list of rules.
