He doesn't have a shul but yes, he takes it very seriously.
Sounds like it's time to find another shul?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

In Lakewood? You will be hard pressed to find a mainstream one that enforces masks. I would have to imagine that if that Rav had a shul itís unlikely he would either. Itís one thing to strongly believe in it. Itís another to enforce.

There is one covid safe option in my neighborhood.

I'm in Monsey, not Lakewood.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Iím wondering how many people are switching Shuls because of this.

I know people switching shuls because of mask/SD rules.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Lakewood covid cases

Based on what we've seen in Lakewood during the past 2 waves it definitely seems that children (10-11 and under) aren't a source of spread.
Time to test out this theory. My 11 year old just tested positive (minor symptoms). She was exposed to her bus driver (who refused to wear a mask). No one else in family is sick...yet.

11 is too old to test the theory.

Iím aware of quite a few Rabbanim in Lakewood who wear masks personally and encourage others to do so as well, but do not force it.

Rabbi Zimbal from Westgate does and has been for some time. I hear of R Micha Cohen from Oakley Hills, Rí Yitzchok Sorotzkin, and R Yerucham. Can anyone confirm/deny these?

Rav Zimbal has been wearing a mask since right before Rosh Hashanah and had a table keeping everyone coming over after davening a bit away.

My rav was niftar just over a year ago; myself and the community as a whole would really have benefited from his wisdom and medical knowledge.

(Yes, I'm talking about him.)

Ditto
I may be nuts but I believe that his absence is part of the covid gezaira.

One beis medrash in Lakewood has over 20 positives. They are having a Corona section for those bochurim.

That's one way to reach herd immunity.

From what I heard they believe that virtually everyone there has been heavily exposed between the many mesivta bochurim that had it as well as the beis medrash. The covid section is, in their estimation,  almost just going through the motions.
