Bris will move indoors.  But the minyan won't need to move indoors
will they serve food? Hard to eat with a mask.

The baby has a mask...

Many health care workers are sick even with a mask, and a mask doesnít work with a beard so donít rely on your mask to much.

Personally I would sat that If you really are going to stay 10 feet away from anyone, not touch your face, and be really careful than the risk is low, but you really have to all go there with the mindset that all the other people are positive. Practically itís hard to put on teffillin without a table, with gloves and a mask, etc. if anyone there is showing symptoms... donít rely on a mask. Be careful not to touch much even with gloves.

First teen death in the US. No known underlying condition as of now


CNN

After this report first aired, the LA County Department of County Health issued a clarification that there might be an "alternate explanation" for the fatality other than Covid-19.

We keep hearing the flu has been more deadly this year than previous years. I was thinking maybe because early cases were not diagnosed properly?

would you risk going to a private outdoor event that is only 10 young people and all will have masks and gloves and practice social distancing? my brother is making a bris and asked me to join for outdoor shachris. 

no mussar please,  just straight up answer

For every 10 people I know, a bunch arenít really serious about social distancing. So no.

Perhaps - https://www.businessinsider.com/seattle-flu-study-coronavirus-testing-washington-2020-3
Worth mentioning that in countries where China virus is declining, flu cases are too. Social distancing should help basically all infectious diseases.

I hope she's right.

When will people that had symptoms, are going to be able to get a blood test to see if it has antibodies.
They just approved usage of plasma from recovering patients as a treatment. Won't they have to screen the blood first? Seems like a worthwhile trade-off to me.

I've been saying this for weeks.  Now I just wonder if it's a second wave.  Quite worrying either way.

Did people lose their sense of smell due to the 'flu'?
Or was that a different strain?
And what about people who tested positive for flu? Or are you just asking about those who didn't test?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I know quite a few people who tested negative or inconclusive for the flu which leaves me wondering.

I know my daughter had flu like symptoms early December and tested negative for the flu. At that time, the pediatrician said the flu only has a 85% (approximately) accuracy rate.

Is their pop up hospitals just a tent and beds or real hospitals?
