Keep in mind that all of these OCHD numbers are for Lakewood cases; I haven't been tracking Jackson/Toms River cases.

After seeing the letters come out from BP and Monsey, I'd think that we would see a similar letter in Lakewood, especially considering schools are starting this week. However, I do know that Lakewood doctors are now gun shy after the backlash Pesach time (about minyanim etc.), so who knows if we will actually see any public statement.
And now a letter from Flatbush hatzolah. Yet Lakewood remains silent

A teenager recently home from camp with mild symptoms tested positive and seems to have passed it on to her parent who is symptomatic and positive. Parent was not all that cautious in March/April but was negative for antibodies in May.

I would think that although this and similar anecdotes do not reflect on any assumption of herd immunity in Lakewood since some cases are inevitable, they do warrant some increased vigilance.

Do you have a link to or copy of the FB Hatzalah letter that you could post?

And another letter, from Central Hatzolah https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/1895633/alert-central-hatzolah-in-nyc-sends-out-message-regarding-uptick-in-covid-19-cases.html

The silence in Lakewood is thundering.
Maybe they're in the middle of making one? Or maybe there hasn't been an uptick? Why so quick to judge??

Just Maybe the situation in Lakewood is a bit different than NY - like the people testing positive are asymptomatic no ICU etc. Besides what's a letter for? For the 100s of comments pro and against?

This reminds me of the attitude purim time.
"It's 'only' in New Rochelle."
"It's 'only' in North Jersey."
"It's 'only' in Boro Park."
"Maybe it's the zechus hatorah protecting?"

Correct. And while Lakewood really stepped up once they decided it was serious, they unquestionably reacted too late. To risk doing that again... I don't know why anyone would be ok with taking that chance. We're not talking about shutting everything down, just publishing a heads up to get people to pay attention.

Armed with 2.5 months of it being fully open and the knowledge that the rate is at about 0.03%, well below the Communist State of New Yorks rate. I think that they think they are doing just fine.

Lakewood has been open 2.5 months the same way Flatbush, BP, Monsey were - which are now issuing warnings about new cases/reinfections; and we are still somehow saying that Lakewood is maybe different?

What is the threshold for positive cases in a school before they will be required to shut down? I heard 3.

I was wondering the same thing. Wouldn't it make sense to have all the students and staff test before school opens?

Whatever the threshold is, they are much more likely to reach it by continuing to stay silent.

I know there's a sentiment in town that people shouldn't test even when feeling ill lest it lead to another shutdown. This sentiment will only become stronger once schools open and testing could lead to a school being shut.
