I have no clue. I just found it interesting. My shul isn't using it, and based on some current events, I wouldn't trust them even if they did.

I may have been off so I’ll take back the “weeks of 200s-300s” for now but I checked quite a few times over the past couple of weeks and saw numbers in the 200s-300s (sometimes 400s and 500s)  for some time. Perhaps they were aberrations and/or delayed reporting issues but I haven’t seen a day close to a thousand in a very very long time until 2 days ago.

Do you not think deaths are starting to rise very significantly now?
Considering the 7 day average is below where it was 1.5 weeks ago I wouldn't call this a significant rise. This can always change drastically over the next few days, that's why I said it's very concerning and should be watched.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

There was one, but it got out of hand and politics forced it into the shul.

ETA: I didn't go to that one while it was around, as the standards were questionable and my situation at the time didn't allow for those risks.

Are you ok with wearing a mask + eye protection indoors?

In Florida's current situation, I'm personally not comfortable, but I'd be thrilled if all indoor minyanim here were keeping those standards.

This is why people bring up the opposite of lockdown being everything back to normal, because of scenarios like this. There is 0 risk in an outdoor minyan. An attitude like that is why people lock themselves in their house.

שקר וכזב
There is LESS risk (much less) in outdoor minyanim. There most definitely is risk.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

I didn't have a huge issue with the outdoor minyan, given that it was happening at a time of very little Covid activity here, but there were no masks and it was in a tent. I had a pregnant wife and then a newborn in the house and a super high-risk FIL. Not that I have to justify myself to you... But this black and white, binary mentality you have is so wrong on every level.
