I've heard that ashirus is a segula for Maftir Yona.

IME, it's never the rich guys who buy it. Not rich before, and not rich after.

While Dan will never expose a DDFer, we should intimidate him into exposing himself.

Hey, and Dan haters here? Yoohooo.... Come on out... We won't hurt you...
Any chance he turns himself in? I mean, Dan and JJ already know who he is. So what if the rest of us find out?

Personal opinion, anyone who posts like that on any day, but especially right before YK, has stuff going on that DDF hate ain't gonna help.

?s=21

Based on anything I can find, it was a single day spike, right after the State brought in rapid tests. I don't know why it's at all comparable to anything we're seeing in the frum communities.

The city of Buffalo had a 5.5 percent positive rate a couple weeks ago and no one was freaking out.

Source?

Really? 140 tests in Boro park yesterday is a low number to consider it an outbreak

A) Do you really want them digging in to the real numbers in BP?
B) Positivity rate just tells you trend and possible prevalence. It's not going to be the determining factor in declaring an outbreak. Triple the previous numbers says concerning things, and the requests made by CB-12 don't change anything. The request is nonsensical.

Completely nonsensical.

Would the State be wrong if they imposed a targeted shutdown in Lakewood? Not if you personally would be happy with it, but would it be the right or wrong thing?

From the State's perspective, it's the right thing to do, in theory. However, it would be unenforceable and pointless, so practically it's the wrong thing to do.

This explains a lot!

Why bother reporting to the state if you're giving stale data?

I asked this question to two doctors in Lakewood and they both did not have a problem with a positive hanging out with a positive. (Question was not for a large scale minyan. It was regarding my daughter hanging out in my backyard with her friend).

2 people hanging out in a backyard is a different question than 80 people hanging out for hours in a tent. I'm not saying the answer would be different, but they are very different scenarios.

I meant for the state. Im not talking about community actions

I know. And I'm not advocating for a lockdown, either. Just commenting on the absurdity of it all.

Id imagine 400 cases would be a full stop shutdown

"Hey, Joe, time to close the doors?"
 "Lemme check. Nope, still one horse here. Oh, wait, he's gone. Clear to close, Jim!"
