This is way overdue. The CH Beis Din seems to have a delay in their guidance.

Was there ever any substantiated expert guidance advising that outdoor gatherings were not a problem?
Why be more machmir than official government requirements (not suggested "guidelines")?

If I'll manage I will post later on a video that is going around on WhatsApp of the bochurim that arrived in Israel being told their status. They are basically all being moved to isolation at a hotel in Jerusalem. Each getting their own room. Anyone presenting symptoms will be moved to a medical facility. Health ministry is assuming anyone arriving from Crown Heights is positive.
Free Hotel? Not bad!

Worthy of a DDMS post - get a free hotel stay in Israel (for Israeli citizens only) all meals included.

Please explain what the issue would be when they are
in very small groups
outdoors
practicing "social distancing"
all young and healthy individuals
who are not in any contact with at-risk (older and underlying conditioned) populations?

The reason they did so is because ppl were going to the 770 backyard and it was also full.

Did you look up the Rambam? (I posted a bi-lingual link above) Especially the last sentence. They are taking these extreme measures because the Oilom wasn't taking restrictions seriously.

I thought I read somewhere that the government started a Corona hotel in Tel Aviv as well...

If they can follow those precautions nothing but do you really believe they will?
Right now it is a mindset. We have to change how we act and think right now before it is to late.
