Fasts should be cancelled now as Iranian rabbis did for Taanis Esther. People need their immune system.

I don't understand why they didn't establish a ta'anis tzibur. If it's a dire enough mageifah to close shuls and schools, it would seem clear cut to warrant a ta'anis tzibur
We have not met the guidlines of the gemara in taanis

The TLS actually just updated it after shabbos and it's better now but not great. Makes me wonder who is involved in putting out this notice in the first place.
I just got a bit of clarification, that there was an emergency meeting right before Shabbos. And someone on behalf of the Roshie Yeshiva, quickly typed up a sign to hang up, basically just acknowledging that a meeting taken place and there were discussions held. It was not done by the actual Yeshiva, The person supposedly wasn't giving much instructions what to write, and clearly didn't use any common sense.

BMG just sent out a robocall, although They hope the zman will end on regular schedule, they're urging any bochurim who're planning on flying for Pesach should do so ASAP.

Another shul in Lakewood closed down due to exposure.

Dear Mispallelim,
I was unfortunately just informed that Two of our members were exposed on Purim to an individual that has tested positive for the virus, COVID-19. Both members Davened all the Teffilos in Heichal Tzvi this past Shabbos.  Although they have not yet been tested, as of this morning they are exhibiting symptoms.  I am currently in touch with Daas torah and Medical professionals dealing with the situation at hand. Currently we were told that the shul most be closed immediately and be sanitized by professionals.  I will update as soon as I get a response from the Doctor on necessary precautions for all that were exposed.
 
May they have a Refuah Sheleima B’meheira!
Besuros Tovos,
Yanky Mashinsky

Some schools in Flatbush are not planning on closing, since R' Chaim Kanievski said not to...

Agudah didn't join CRC on closing shuls just yet.

Does Torah Mesorah still follow public school system or not anymore?

BMG said they will go along with whatever the state does (in regards to public schools).
