Purim was frightening. 0 awareness. 0 precautions. 0 change in behaviors. I'm usually the skeptic and the one saying not to make a fuss and to calm the hysteria. Now I'm being called a fear monger. I'm getting laughed at for not shaking hands with people.

The lack of precautions in our community is staggering.
I heard that your uncle's party turned into a family gathering as no one showed up.

But in our community (and families) I share your feelings. I too am the one to shun hysteria, now I'm being mocked. Though I might be the only one still thinking that my FIL shouldn't cancel his planned trip here for Pesach. I just think that while he is over 80, traveling now in business class through places with high awareness might not increase his risk.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Simple reason for that is that many people dont have access general population does , and they really have no idea how severe it really is
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Local doctors have been absolutely terrible at providing info and guidance.

All I know, is that my pediatrician told someone to turn off the news and relax. He said it’s not much worse than the flu

The whole point is that we should be advising people *not* to get out more

I spoke to a community rabbi in Brooklyn last night, he wouldn’t agree that the biggest cluster of cases in the US might have anything to do with our tight knit lifestyle. Despite nothing of this sort happening elsewhere besides the South Korean cult. Apparently it could’ve happened with anyone that got infected and attended a bat mitzvah, funeral, shul all within a few days.

Bergen county Vaad (RCBC) closed all shuls. I'm sure the letter is posted up thread...

We had shacharis minyanim this morning, but that was it as West Hempstead has closed all 6 shuls until at least Monday.

POTUS should shut down stock market for 7 days, then revisit in 7 days. 

After 9/11 they closed the market for like 5-6 trading days.

With all the other shutdowns - seems like it might preserve somw of the wealth in 401k's.
The market will come roaring back, the only ones who will lose are the ones who take their money out now. Anyone not close to or in retirement has nothing to worry about.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

would it be unwise to book a flight from TLV-JFK in the next week or two with El Al to LHR then AA to JFK?
