Overalll there are I think four types of people by these minyanim
1) the smart-alek type that think itís not dangerous and no one knows what they are talking about.
2) the people that feel this is the only way they are Jewish.
3) the people that need to socialize.
4) the people that donít care too much about others.

Itís like we have our own ארבעה בנים.
I only see one of them in that list.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Look at the beginning of this post when I started on March 6th and most people did not implement anything.

Crazy
Crazy that you think posting here would have had that outcome.

Love it. I bet most of these types during regular times will miss minyan for non-essential needs (e.g. travel for pleasure)

You know there's a saying that says vote early and vote often.

@CountValentine  I believe that's from Chicago.

Early intervention and constant hand washing making it a force of habit is the key.

I feel like these days I wash my hands as much, less sanitizer, more gloves but rarely touch face.

You got to be practical 65% of Americans did not wash their hands after going into the bathroom before this pandemic started.

I'm not sure what anybody in the right mind would use a gas pump. Even gas stations offered gloves 2 years ago saying how hundreds a day touch the pump.

I'm happy I could raise an early cry. Im not hysterical by nature but I saw that we needed to stop!

Do you know how much tzaar this is? Accross from my parents, one rabbi lost his father, down the block, another Rabbi lost his father and mother.

Couldn't be more wrong. I was educated by @yuneeq and in turn many people I spoke to influenced others. I don't think it's hyperbole to say that lives were saved from this forum

Could you stop with the missing minyan thing? We all know you wouldn't go anywhere where there isn't minyan three times a day and you wouldn't take any flight that makes you miss a Minyan.

No doubt about it. I think we all had a period of time when we knew things were getting serious but hadn't yet internalized it enough to change our actions. Yuneeq and Chevron definitely helped speed up the process for me. I was one of the most vocal advocates to shut down our shul and stopped sending my kids to school five days before they closed.

(p.s. my family has not had the virus so far as I know)
If you don't care why would you comment?

There might still be someone that hasn't seen his last 3 posts about it  ::)

Because of @yuneeq I personally influenced the owner of a very large school in Lakewood to shut down 2 full days before the whole of Lakewood followed suit despite very heavy pushback from his staff. There are currently two teachers from the school battling corona, one on a ventilator and one at home, but each of those is a Rav and probably contracted it in that position.

Other than that, the school has largely been spared what most schools in Lakewood are going through as far as staff with corona. Iím not saying itís everything but the difference between being closed Monday or Wednesday after Purim probably played the role in much more than a handful of deaths in Lakewood thus far.

Of course, on a family level, I have kept my entire family including my semi-elderly in-laws and high-risk parent on their toes a lot earlier and a lot more serious than they would have been if they would have stuck around waiting for Lakewood to wake up.

Itís not an exaggeration at all. This forum DID save lives. BH! Thanks @yuneeq for keeping us on our toes!

It just looks like he has some type of auto-respond feature on this forum that the rest of us donít have access to  >:(
