Seems like Yom Tov gets rid of it
Maybe the schnapps at the Simchas Torah kiddush

The difference between a sensible man and a power hungry man.
Murphy sounds like an understanding fellow bíh
I also think Murphy shies away from confrontation unlike Cuomo and Deblasio who relish it

There is a way but it hasn’t been done in Lakewood. Still you can be fairly certain of the source in some cases. For example, all family members test negative following one member’s symptomatic positive, and then a few days later test positive with symptoms.
Most people in Lakewood especially people from families with children have likely been unknowingly exposed multiple times over the last few weeks.

In Israel is usually works the other way. The immigration officer doesn't allow people in before they register on MoH website as being subject to quarantine.
I was under the impression you fill out the quarantine form before you leave and everyone coming from a red country is subject to quarantine till they get their negative test. (I have a relative going who has a positive antibody test with a negative covid test and am trying to understand the process).

We were told in advance that it would be done at the airport (for a charge). However, as I said, DW walked up to the immigration agent, handed her passport was asked where she was coming from, to which she responded Brooklyn, NY, was asked which flight she's coming off, to which she gave the DL flight information, was asked for the boarding authorization, and was let in. When DW asked about quarantine, she was told she didn't need to. I really don't know what happened, was this some kind of an error, was it based on info previously provided, but she was definitely not sent to quarantine!
Did they give that in writing that she doesn't need to quarantine? I would imagine someone getting busted breaking quarantine and saying "but the officer at the airport told me I don't need to quarantine" without any proof isn't going to fly.

So Israel will do antibody tests to confirm? Where will that be done?

They list a few places you can get the test.

Just wondering, how do people know 100% that they got it from a child (or anybody for that matter)? Never understood this.
People don't know. They THINK they got it from a child etc..

Dont be so afraid of officially needing to be in quarantine.

I came back recently from israel the quarantine in NYC is more strict then israel

NYC called me every day to ask if im quarantined. ..just asked but they did something

in israel nobody called nobody came to check. you don't even need to write a building number where you go. Nothing
Someone I know returned to EY before RH. I asked him what he is going to do about quarantine. He told me my phone will quarantine.

We can still turn him into an anti-Semite if we will scream that enough over and over.
If I say blacks die of Covid at a higher rate because they don't take care of their health or because they don't SD I am a racist. If Cuomo yells that Jews don't SD and uses scam science to justify heavy crackdowns, then continuously harps on the Jews at his press conference,  and Deblasio sends every available inspector in the city to give fines whether there are violations or not, that's the Jews fault not antisemitism.

I have been off the forums for a bit so I didn't see this thread till now and it brings up interesting points

One point missed is that we are forgetting what happened BEFORE covid. Jersey City, Monsey on Chanuka etc etc. These were just two of many anti semitic attacks. It was getting uncomfortable well before covid.

I'm not sure it boils down to anti-Semitism at its core. It comes down to inept people compounding thoughtless policies with further bad decisions, magnified by sending unqualified and untrained drones to enforce them all. Is it 100% wrong and indefensible? Yes. Is it motivated by hate? That's a harder sell.
BLM had riots with gross violations and the politicians did squat. All the jews did wrong was try to practice their religion in a way that is incompatible with the goverment restrictions. (no, I don't buy the "but they should have been wearing masks" argument. A tefilla or a tish with thousands of masked people isn't going to make anyone happier). I think there is SOME anti semitism involved. Look at NJ. The numbers here were plenty bad yet Gov Murphy chose to work WITH our community not AGAINST us like in NY.

Another point is that this country was founded on the right to religious freedom. The government and the courts have been trampling on these rights for the last 7 months. Basically any government official can make any rule in the name of public health whether there is scientific basis or not and nothing can stop them.

how much does a taxi or uber cost from ORD to West Rogers park or Peterson park? Also does returning a car rental take a long time? (i'm coming to chicago in and out and deciding if I should rent a car or not)
