That is simply not true. Just look at the amount of meshulachim in Lakewood at any given time. I also see plenty of guests from out of town very regularly.
Yep, there is no logical explanation to why it stopped besides either herd immunity or it was a wave. There are always people from other places around especially in lakewood. There are a few rebbehs from israel here now with thousands of chasidim. So no the ny/nj frum communities don't live in an insular rock and definitely have outsiders on a daily basis.

Outbreak of COVID Cases in 5 Towns, Due to a Camp Exposure From PA

Quote
The following is an urgent letter from Dr. Glatt:

The Commissioner of Health of Nassau County just called me and asked for our assistance regarding 8 cases of newly diagnosed COVID-19 in our community in campers returning from Camp Shoresh in Pennsylvania. In addition, many other campers there had symptoms and were not tested for COVID-19. The PA DOH is already involved as well.

Based on significant concerns that the Governor and the NY State DOH have regarding this exposure, they have asked, and I fully agree, that all campers returning from that camp self quarantine immediately. All family members exposed to those campers likewise should be quarantined pending further evaluation.

As I mentioned, the Governor himself is aware and has expressed great concern about this exposure and the potential this might have regarding delaying school openings.

It is critical that we do everything possible to abort this potential outbreak before it spreads further and potentially impacts school opening.

These campers and all exposed family members should not be attending shul or any community events, and should be quarantined in their houses. Medical advice and COVID-19 testing should be sought as appropriate.

Please spread this information to your congregations.

Thank you, may Hashem help us stem this potential serious outbreak.

Good Shabbos,

Aaron Glatt

A relative of mine came back from camp with a bad cough. Didn't get tested but I'm wondering if there's something to it.

Alternatively, it's most likely from staying up the last night of camp.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I think Vermont or New Hampshire.

Apparently most of DDF was wrong. Based on the poll.

Well, I voted yes because I couldn't see it happening that our kids won't go in camp this year, I knew that one way or the other they will have to make it happen, and so it was for the main part. But now I believe the poll was whether the authorities will permit opening camps this year, and for that were most voters right indeed.

I know someone who needed to get emergency surgery for cancer, and after 2 days in the NY hospital came down with a cough. They should have cancelled all emergency surgeries.
