Shocked I tell you.
No need to jump the gun. Just a data point and not a very specific or detailed one. Take it in context at this point. I put it out there because we ought to have as much info as possible, no matter which way the info points.

1. Ask local doctors about their caseloads before drawing conclusions from Hatzolah calls. People are more cognizant of Covid-19 now and will seek medical treatment before they get to a state of needing Hatzolah (as opposed to Purim-Pesach).

2. Lakewood Hatzolah is still getting respiratory distress calls (e.g. 5 on Thursday), as well as some possible Code 19 calls.

This a good datapoint for showing that Hatzolah calls are not the be all, end all.

Rabbi Rottbergs circle extends beyond Toms River/Lakewood so not much of a datapoint without location of the family, did they observe a strict quarantine, were they recently in a location where the virus is still ongoing etc.

The Lakewood medical practitioners have recently started to develop very decent coordination and sharing of info so if there would be an upswing in cases it should be known fairly quickly....
The gabbai of a Shul in my neighborhood told me he personally knows 2 people who daven by Rí Rotberg whoíve gotten sick in the last week for the first time with COVID-19, so thatís likely who he was talking about.

He also told me heís close friends with another couple in Lakewood who fell ill this week, father mother and 2 teenage children (positive for COVID, they did not have it previously) are all sicker than they can ever remember being, completely confined to their beds. BH nothing worse.

They stay local or got it elsewhere? Someone I work with also just got it. But he was at his properties around the US the last few weeks and just came down with it

I donít know. Iím just repeating what he told me, and he didnít mention that. Even if they picked it up elsewhere, they can have exposed other people while infectious (just as they would have infected their family), so caution is still warranted. The point is that itís still likely possible to catch the virus in Lakewood, despite some people denying that.

Thanks for the DP. So it seems there are more new cases around than some people would have us believe..

You need both. Doctors will have better early data and  data on asymptomatic patients or patients with minor symptoms.

Hatzalah will have better data about (potentially-?)COVID-related serious heart/neurological incidents, patients being treated for moderate symptoms at home and/or using concentrated (?) oxygen.

He lives in lakewood. I don't think anyone really believes that there are 0 cases. Point was to flatten the curve. It flattened and now there may be cases here and there but by and large it has really died down bh. Assuming large % of from communities in ny got it I wouldn't be super concerned about another outbreak right now. But obviously we shouldn't let are guards down totally. Nothing good can come out of that.

Look at the comments. Some conjecture that it's dead viruses, while others assert that it's new positives.

Itís a nursing home. If there was an old outbreak, they wouldíve known about it already, and have already tested everyone. Thereís no chance that only 3 residents got it a month ago and no one else, and no ones in the home showed symptoms. It only makes sense that itís a new outbreak.

nursing homes across the tristate area were not able to test everyone back in late March and April when they had their outbreaks.  They are all testing all staff and residents now. Many of them are asymptomatic and are showing up positive.

On yom tov I met the admin of a jewish nursing home in NYC, he told me he lost many residents to COVID, and they're going to test all the residents for the first time this week.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I just got back from a quick trip to Williamsburg where I met with someone to discuss a certain business dealing. The only 2 Jewish people I saw wearing a face mask were what looked like an elderly couple that walked into his office. Every other Jew on the street was not wearing a mask.

This was after he told me that the entire thing is a distant memory of something that happened 2 months ago. The same individual also has an office in Flatbush, where he tells me it's a totally different world.

What did strike me as an interesting contrast was a child approaching a (Jewish) stranger asking him to cross him. I don't think that is common practice in Flatbush or other communities that are stricter about COVID-19 precautions.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It's actually an attempt to write something said in the Williamsburg dialect of Yiddish spelled in in the Latin alphabet.

קענסט מיך קראָסן?

Or the full version:

קענסט מיך קראָסן דעם סטריט?

Writing in English "to cross him the street" isn't proper. Writing "to walk him across the street" might be grammatically correct, but would lose the spirit and the mental image, aka killed in the translation.

Talking if which, is the Count moving his daughters wedding venue to Ohio to be able to accommodate all the guests?
