Can't verify this is legit (don't see it on TLS site), but if real, it is quite perplexing.
What’s perplexing about it?
Seems like they’re trying to be cautious without telling anyone not to come to shul

Not all. Sulitz is open. Members only. Horowitz in Lawrence is open as well.

Verified that it was on TLS status.

1. Someone that suspects they have the virus should go to shul?
2. The most common symptoms aren’t listed - dry cough, shortness of breath.
3. A non-symptom is listed first.

There is a VERY wide gap between Lakewood and the others. Shuls are wide open and people are still making kidushes and Shalom zachors like usual...

I defer to da'as taroah when it comes to psak, so I will not state my opinion. However it is worth noting that Lakewood has also yet to a have a single confirmed case. We will see how long that lasts, however until then i would be surprised if anything changes.

That's only because they don't eat Chinese food 🙄

It's a global pandemic It's going to reach them within a couple of days.

If anything that by exercising caution and precautions they could avoid this but they're not!!

I have been implementing extreme cautions in my shull for 3 weeks now, this In Miami.

As of Friday, known members only, required hand sanitizer when entering building..

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.

If they are showing signs they should self quarantine.

Heard from a friend in West Hempstead that shuls will close down there as well.


What he should have said - "If you are in quarantine, and you've come to shul against the law, you have the din of a Rotzeach! Leave Now!
I know someone who had recently returned from Italy and developed a cough and fever. A few of his kids had fever too, and THEY DID NOT GO TO THE DOCTOR BECAUSE THEY DID NOT WANT TO QUARANTINE. Highly irresponsible. Extremely selfish as there are many many people who this virus can be deadly for. His claim was that its no big deal, his family all recovered from it, and they did not get very sick. People need to realize that this is not about you. Its about all other people you are potentially KILLING because you did not want to quarantine. Sickening.

770 posted signs before Shabbos that occupancy will be limited to 500 people. However I no one seemed to be checking for פרשנדתא and beyond. It was definitely less crowded and main minyan was moved to 9:30am so a second "main" Minyan could take place.

Didn't look like anyone was taking things too seriously. Kiddushim were held, no increased availability of tissues and paper towels.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Honestly downstairs 770 hasn't had soap or paper towels in weeks during the weekdays. As a daily davener I'm honestly disgusted about the managements response. Honestly the health department should close it until someone takes proper charge. PS. To be clear I'm not a benshimon fan at all.
