Is there a study suggesting reinfection is possible? FWIU it was believed that reinfection is possible based on the assumption that there is a no sign of the virus left
 7-14 days after symptoms and people tested positive weeks later. Now we know it's very possible to test positive after many weeks without symptoms.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Hate to rain on a speculative, conjecture parade (with the ironic title of "The Science of COVID-19"):
I foolishly thought when I opened this thread it would be about the "science".

Research from other coronaviruses showed that it *may* be possible to be reinfected. Don't have a link on hand...

Yup. As I hope everyone has been practicing? Or are you going to tell me that because of minyanim etc. the infection rate is higher? Ironic
I meant strict social distancing practiced by your extended family etc since you seem to be an anomaly  among the posters from Lakewood; you seem to be the only one who doesnít know of widespread incidence of covid symptoms among their non senior family and social circles in Lakewood.

The "science" is not there so far.

My extended family has the same. Only 3/9 (married) children's family have had symptoms.

Whole family or one member in each?

One family had both spouses with symptoms. Others only one.

Of course we practiced strict social distancing, including no minyanim outside of a brother who participated in a well enforced porch minyan when it was allowed by his Rav.

I had a lot to do with it being taken seriously. My father closed his school early as well.

Not including children (of whom none had symptoms), correct.

Do we live in the same town?
7 of a family members co-workers had it. Didn't ask about spouses. Every neighbor on 3 blocks we spoke to save one (from a distance) close to 2 dozen- had someone in the family with loss of smell/ symptoms. Rov had it (by ďitĒ I mean symptoms, not a positive test which was impossible for most to obtain) gabbai had it. Many multiple shul members had it (havenít spoken with most individualy but it is something that the rov and many from the shul are saying- take that for what it is worth).  5 people I called erev last days for a chessed available for them had had it in the family. Brother in law and sis- in law had it. One chavrusa had symptoms. Another chavrusah told me he and all of his neighbors had symptoms. Third chavrusa hadnít had it as of 3 days before yom tov. Have not reached out to him since. 7 askanim a colleague of mine dealt with had it. Roshei yeshiva, mashgichim, rabeim that I or family members have/ had shaychus too had it. Some fairly severe keeping quiet about it (in home nurse etc) Thatís just off the top of my head. Those who mentioned not having had it yet in the under 60 bracket? Very few. A poll would probably be better than all this anecdotal stuff but my experience is very different than yours.

All of the symptoms can be from 100 different things (or imagined...).
