Crashing and banning by CloudFlare. This is impossible.

Great story. I always wondered if this kind of thing happens. Well, here is my answer.

So looks like it's a question that needs human communication... you might even need to point out the US DOL rules to them.
Thank you.
The answer in "NO" I CAN'T TELEWORK Because I have children at home
That's a nice theory, but that's not the question on the form. The question is "Did your employer offer you remote work or work from home, doing your customary job for the same pay rate and same number of hours as you would normally work?". That doesn't leave any room for your interpretation.

NY - My wife has the ability to telework but is unable to do so because she is caring for our children. She filled out the UI (or maybe PUA) form a month ago and now they are requesting that she fill another form. She has a W-2 job but I believe is not eligible for regular UI since she only took this job recently after being out of a job for a few months. The problem is, with this new form, there is no option to select childcare as the reason for applying. Once you select that you are able to work your regular hours via telework, the form questionnaire is done and you are (I assume) denied.
How can she apply using the childcare covered reason when she has the option to telework?

... and the average (Jewish) Brooklyn family size is 9, the chances that it should be caught is multiplied drastically.
You must be a math expert yourself if you came up with the average Jewish family size of 9 in Brooklyn.

Isolation. I live in Crown Heights. I leave my house once a day to get some exercise and not lose my sanity.

Beis Din of Crown Heights ruled all shuls and men mikva'os shut effective immediately.
Wow. Finally.

Can NYC do anything right?
Unfortunately, NYC is not the only one to blame. Our local leadership failed miserably and in some cases continues to do so.
Many shuls in Crown Heights and BP are still open.

To be clear, they are saying that if you have symptoms, there is no point in going in to the doctor, just quarantine immediately, as the doctor can't prescribe anything anyway. Going to the doctor puts more people at risk, including the doctor.

They did explicitly say that if someone has severe symptoms or if symptoms persist more than 6-7 days to call the doctor.
Yes, thank you for clarifying. I missed this part.

From my anecdotal conversations with family and friends, I don't believe it's possible to change someone's attitude in this through an argument. Maybe they will change their mind when the situation worsens, maybe not.

It's not a ban at this point, it's something the CDC recommends.

If 500 people have it and shuls are still open, rabbonim will literally have blood on their hands.
Lakewood and BP will be in the same place in a few days if they don't take action now. Actually, it might already be too late.

Amazon OOS of Tylenol good idea to grab in the local stores if you find any.
I guess Tylenol is the new Toilet Paper.

I've heard reports that there's a massive outbreak in CH, but no testing available. Is that accurate?
As a resident of Crown Heights, I can say it's totally accurate. Hard to put a number to it, but my estimate (based on friends that have symptoms) would be 500+ here alone.
It's not that no testing is available, people are being told (by Hatzolah, Doctors) not to go for testing, even with symptoms.
Even with all the above, many people here are continuing life as usual. Shuls are still open, stores, etc.  Seems like people don't take any measures unless forced to do so, and even then...
