IGG levels always decline, but POTENTIALLY stay at an immune level long-term.

In most states, yes. In NJ, maybe not so much. And I get many DDFers are in NJ, so the view that this is endless and stupid is somewhat justified, based on how it affects them. But advocating for a complete reopening because you don't like the guidelines presented to you is a gross overreaction with potentially deadly consequences, IMO.

See graph
That graph shows IgG staying in the blood, not dropping to nil as the Dr claimed.
Like I said, hopefully just faulty testing.

Are you from NYC? In my community there definitely is some herd immunity. I'm not paskening if we should open or not based on that. Just saying what I believe the fact is.

In regards to what you're saying that no one wants lock down forever, certainly some people make it sound this way.

For example, Dr Fauci suggesting that it's good idea to continue to never shake anyone's hand. Comments like this is why people in the right are afraid that this is a never ending game..

Oh, congrats to ddf for taking a thread off topic once again...  ;)
Wait, not shaking hands means there's no lockdown end game?

Shaking hands has always been a prime method of spreading germs. It's part of our culture, but that doesn't mean it's a sacred cow.

The question is what else will be included in the list of things we'll never go back to.

I'm sorry, this is new to me. What is "some" herd immunity?

That's schools, in the context of new info about a Kawasaki outbreak. If he would have said anything else, he should have been shot on the spot.

And I don't believe it's true that people are running for testing for curiosity as he says. It's primarily so they can donate and the number of donations has been tremendous.
I know plenty of people who are running to take antibody tests for various other reasons and not to donate blood. Some people want to join the rest of the world in Orlando and only feel safe flying if they have antibodies. Many parents want to have their married children over already and drew the line to allow it if they had antibodies. In NY where nursing home employees are required to test twice weekly, they can be exempt from that if they are positive for antibodies.

This has been discussed already a couple of weeks ago. Don't remember which thread. And I can only speak for my community. But in my shull, 80% of people have had the virus already by now. And I'm from BP. As I said I can talk for my community. Maybe outside of my circles it's different.

Bikur Cholim asked that people do not use this drive unless they are planning on donating plasma. If you just want to know if you have antibodies, you can go to Urgent Care in Todd Plaza, the results are quicker and it's covered by most insurances, but their test only tells you if you have antibodies. It does not tell you if you had covid19, and does not tell you how many antibodies you have. But still usefull if yo want to know if you can visit parents etc...
