I guess this means they decided to re-open?
Seems like it. I'm concerned this will be a foolhardy move; I believe that there will be a significant surge next week (due to ST) and the schools should stay closed for this week, otherwise the govt will be pushing to have them shut for 2 weeks.

I don't think the government will take into account whether or not schools are currently open.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Limiting to local only would seem perfectly reasonable to me. Surprised there was no push for that. But then again I'm also surprised by the disdain for masks.
The first superspreader wedding after Tisha Bav was 2 OOT's getting married in Lakewood
Alot of the weddings have at least one side from Lakewood, very often when the girl is from OOT where they would have made it in her home town they are now making in Lakewood
there is no way to stop that

I wasn't clear - I'm concerned that opening schools (including older kids) this week will lead to the ST surge being even bigger and therefore cause schools to be closed for even more than one week (2 weeks minimum).

This makes sense because it means a lot of people traveling to the venue, risky proposition.

I need a Rashi on those ellipses. Do you think he actually said that, or was that about me not believing it was said.

Lol. The former.

He's been saying this type of rhetoric for months.

Then I still can't believe it. If someone of R Chaim Kanievsky's stature has it now (not to mention or belittle all the Kedoshim who died from it), I cannot believe that a Gadol would say that.

IF he did say it, would you now have an easier time understanding those who are struggling to come to terms (on a personal level) with the apparent disconnect between the hashkafos they were raised on and the positions being attributed to current leadership and Daas Torah?

He clearly does not mean that everyone in a bais medrash is immune. He knows that to be factually incorrect, many dozens (hundreds?) of times over, in his own bais medrash.
Google Sheet with Lakewood Covid numbers in profile for those interested.

But as long as we're at it, we did a fully masked outdoor hakafos with 100% compliance.
Everyone commented that it was the most memorable and enjoyable simchas torah of all time, even with the rain we got last night.

Pretty sad state of affairs in Cleveland if that was most memorable and enjoyable ever 😂

Iím not sure how many people really consider him a gadol. Not surprising that he doesnít care about his disciples more than he cared about his wife
