Maybe your glasses have gotten fogged up due to excessive mask usage.
I wear contact lenses  :P
Round 2.  Does this deserve a hamster wheel?

I guess you avoided 770 on Shabbos.
do you wonder why?
unlike you, I wasn't hit in round 1, and -also unlike you- I have no interest in getting hit in round 2.
with out-of-towners (from hotspots) outnumbering masks 10-1 i figured I didn't belong. (even if this week I finally wouldn't get heckled for my mask, as I might have the excuse of taking the notices at face value)
Quote
I would say that about 1% of people wore masks.
wow, that's a real uptick
Quote

I have a friend who initially panicked about being forced to wear a mask, as per the notice put out by the Gaboim/Kratz, but when I explained to him that those notices can only be used to wipe one's hands, not other places, as they can cause rectal bleeding, his panic subsided. Not a word printed on those notices was meant seriously even for a split second by those who published them.
that's a very respectful way for you to describe a psak from our beloved local rabbonim. I'm having flashbacks to the late nun's, the way some lefty neighbors used to talk...

Did I describe a psak of Rabbonim? All I described was a pretty accurate portrayal of the attitude of an uncle of one of the Rabbonim.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

So the discussion of which body part to wipe was a quote from the gabbai with one hand to wipe? You sure presented it as your own...

On substance: why is the rabbonims letter from last week not relevant?

Hearing concern from Lakewood doctors about cases creeping up and being brought in from FL and meshulachim who spread it around town.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

And meshulachim will not
1) get tested/checked and won't show on any official (or unofficial) counts
2) isolate even when sick.

But those who they spread it to should presumably show up. 5 positives today (OCHD). Nothing out of the ordinary in the official numbers

Presumably the difference between what you are seeing and what the Dr is seeing has to do with this.

In or out of the community?
vs. this
OCHD numbers

I heard it on a conference call where I was not able to ask further. It is also a question of
cases creeping up
c"v turning into more than that and how to avoid that without shutting things down.

This is an interesting concern. Meshulachim come in contact with more people than (almost) anyone else in town, it would make sense that they'd likely pick it up and then spread it to many people who have nothing to do with each other.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Especially the wave of Israeli meshulachim around now coming from a hotspot

This is exactly the concern. Someone infected comes from a hotspot and now goes around from shul to shul to shul and house to house to house and chasuna to chasuna.

Which is what happened by the measles outbreak a couple years ago.

Contact is limited to a very short amount of time. The risk seems to be mainly with 15+ minutes within 6 feet.

Why is this the biggest issue?
