All my employees are positive, too, so we're working without being open to the public.

Refuah Shleima to y'all then, and kudos to your employees for sticking it out despite having a legit excuse to slack off.

I avoided it until now, but then I went into a business that is essential retail, and right next to a Covid testing site. The only way I could have been more exposed over the last few weeks is if I had opened a testing site myself. G-d has a wonderful sense of humor.
Et tu?
Refuah Sheleimah!

Vaxxed x4

Although the 4th was only a week ago so that did not yet have time to fully take effect.

Omicron hits Israeli Roshei Yeshiva.
Rav Gershon Eidelstein

In a capsule since the beginning of Covid, had his "second booster" last week.

You can't outsmart God, but you also need to do hishtadlus. I'm going to leave the decision on what is hishtadlus to the gedolei yisroel, but whether or not he ultimately got COVID is irrelevant to that. OTOH, going "above and beyond" hishtadlus will do nothing to protect you.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Are you suggesting he tried to outsmart g-d? He took what he deemed as necessary precautions, certainly his prerogative, and still got infected. It sounds wrong to insinuate otherwise for someone of his stature.

The fact that we see the Israeli rabbonim in the news with corona, and not a single American Rosh Yeshiva or rav (even though they all have omicron too) highlights the stark difference between countries' approach to covid.

Is it time for a new thread titled "Famous people that didn't get Covid-19" and maybe split into two threads for vaxxed and non-vaxxed.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
