And possible poorly administered tests. It is unlikely for anyone who caught it in camp to be testing positive so quickly.
The report just says that the (positive) tests were given within 14 days after camp ended (June 27).

I don't s see how so many could have caught it and tested positive in4days

I donít see where it says they all got tested within 4 days. They caught it during that 4 day period, and tested positive later on.

We're a full month in. No real spread in the zillions of camps and day camps that are open. Gives way more credence to the herd immunity in the frum community in NYNJ argument.

I know of one large camp that set up in PA, had a bunch of kids sick, and refused to do a single test. I highly doubt they are the only ones.

If the camps would shut down would they be required to return money?

If instead of panicking and sending the kids home to their vulnerable communities, they would just let them wait out their asymptomatic situation until camp was over, they would have a buffer instead of a spreader.

The one in NY definitely did not shut down.

.
So instead of sending home 5-10 infected kids, let's ensure the entire camp is infected and then send them home?

Its a famous camp. Atleast 50% of the camp is not from ny/nj, so really not hard to have a large outbreak without the local guys getting sick.

I'm trying to determine the reason why they wouldn't want to self-report. Is it because there's money on the line?
