In the last 24 hours, In Italy, which is under severe lockdown , saw the death of 475 people! Yikes! Soon they won’t be able to help any new patients.
Hopefully not, but it seems they’ll pass China in the next day or two.
(If you trust China’s numbers)

When will they shut all non essential businesses especially retail?
This. Just passed Todd plaza and it was packed with minivans.
And it’s not even such a hotspot.

Ppl gotta get their Pesach clothes somehow.

When it fails because of a lack of testing, who're you going to blame?
Not necessarily this model, but we don’t need state of the art $25,000 ventilators.
Maybe one from 80s or 90s that is basic and cheaper to mass produce.

The bottom line is: failure to mass produce and distribute ventilators, EXTREMELY QUICKLY, will equal preventable deaths. This thing is spreading like wildfire.

Welcome to USA, the land of over-regulation, unions and red tape.
If we were China we would be mass producing these around the clock and using every means we have to distribute them, including military, Amazon, Uber....

Erm, and how am I getting in that room?
Lets say you got into that room. What would you demand from the airlines?

Pressure tactics are pretty silly, “you must pay by X date to hold your spot”.
If by some miracle the state let’s programs operate, and by another miracle there are a significant portion of guests that don’t cancel, there will be plenty of room for anybody to sign up last minute (at bargain rates).

If there is one.
+10000

I know someone who never had a contract & canceled on a program and got a 75% refund. He’s happy with what he got and not looking for machlokes. But I’m sure many others are going to get into massive fights.

Pesach programs can potentially get very interesting where a customer cancels his reservation, and then a week later the operator cancels the program/the state doesn’t allow him to run the program.
In that case both parties are canceling.

What difference does it make what I think. The question is what is right according to Halacha.
Well then, What do you think the Halacha would be?

i Hear both sides

A) If there was no contract outlining a cancellation policy, and someone cancelled 30 days before, maybe they should get a 100% refund?

B) Even if the operator can get back his deposit from the hotel, and that’s a big if, there are always other costs such as food orders, advertising, administrative costs....
If this is “force majeure” or an “Act of G-d”, why should he eat the loss?

What do you think?

As of now I'm planning on going to the pesach hotel outside CLE, we'll see what happens.

I can imagine an enormous amount of machlokes in the hotel/orlando/airbnb space. Many people have non-refundable reservations or reservations without any clear contract regarding cancellations.

I'm hearing a lot of different reports about people being quarantined in CLE and one of the schools may be closed temporarily. Can anyone confirm?

If this goes on for an extended amount of time (6+ months), any chance we might return to the golden age of award travel? Not just while the virus is spreading, but for a couple of years after.
I doubt it, reality is that the 4 big mergers killed it.

Not per their gate announcements. Will forward on WA.
Any update on UA84?
