If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

https://vosizneias.com/2020/07/23/new-psak-from-rabbi-shechter-regarding-washing-hands-on-tisha-bav/
"In other words one who is flippant and is careless about the other rules cannot say that he needs to wash his hands as protection against the virus. If someone is disregarding the other rules of the CDC, he cannot insist on this one, and washing would remain prohibited."

many allow smoking on fast days, including Tisha B’Av (see e.g. shu’t Har HaKarem siman 19). The Chafetz Chaim (Mishna Berrura 556:sif katan #8) strongly disagrees and disallows smoking on any taanis, especially Tisha B’av by pain of excommunication! Others are lenient (see Yabia Omer 1:33 who allows one to be meikel in private).

You can wash your hand with alcohol jell, and even with water and soap if it's not for enjoyment but cleanliness. Minchas Asher

i didn't say that either, i was just saying that he was saying something nobody is interested in hearing, כשם שמצוה על אדם לומר דבר הנשמע, כך מצוה על אדם שלא לומר דבר שאינו נשמע

Is that the Halacha? ;) It's a machloikes in the Gemarah.

In any case, how would he know he's not interested? Most people I know that smoke never put too much thought into it. If they did, they wouldn't be smoking.

AYLOR. Many chassidim follow the psak in name of the Barditchover Ruv Ztz''l to allow everything for in such a year. Since all dinei aveilos were removed for Friday.
