770 tried having everyone wear a mask
Friday night 3/4 had a mask one
Shabbos day about half
Mincha/maariv was about 10%-20%

Herd immunity, or herd mentality?

Anyone here in 770 for maariv tonight? I hear they announced something about that people shouldn't come for slichos, or they should do it outside...

They encouraged people to do slichos outside and that there will be speakers outside so you can hear the chazan, but if you want to enter you must wear a mask.

Thatís basically in short what they said

Mincha/maariv was about 10%-20%
That was because they ran out of masks

And what's the excuse for slichos?

Either the same, even though people could have brought from home, it's not the same when it's in front of you as you walk in.
Or, momentum was lost by the mincha/maariv.
But a lot of people are willing to comply if it's the norm, and even more people will wear if there is "peer pressure" to wear one, and there will always be the people that no matter what, they won't want to wear one

Over the past 24 hours we have become aware of multiple new cases of COVID here in Crown Heights, both in residents and those from out of town. This represents for the first time since Purim a very worrisome surge in new cases.  It is critical that those at risk for serious illness remain protected.

It is time to restart outdoor and porch minyanim, to the extent feasible. Particularly for those above age 60 or with underlying health issues (including obesity).

The response from leadership in CH has been very impressive: full-throated support for the doctors from the Rabbonim, and encouragement for the doctors to be brutally honest. The compliance from the general public has been less than awesome. Makes you wonder if members' theories about Lakewood's official stance are correct, in that they are tempering the guidance in accordance with what they feel the public will actually comply with.

At the beginning the community response was amazing in every way.
It's very difficult to ask anyone to follow rules when there is so much hypocrisy vs senselessness. People end up throwing out ALL the rules. You can hardly blame them.

There comes a certain point where common sense needs to be used, regardless of emotional reactions to the hypocrisy and senselessness of politicians. Right now we're talking about ignoring guidance from the doctors we actually do trust. That doesn't make much sense to me.

But more relevant; the only form of blameless that this virus recognizes is peaceful protests
