COVIDiots
« on: October 05, 2020, 11:31:07 AM »
My dad had a worker come in last week a day after she tested for COVID, and obviously the test turned out positive.
My dad is not young and has been very careful. So stupid that he now has to have exposure because people are so stupid. Besides that, he had to go into quarantine for yuntif, ruining his yuntif. What was this lady thinking. She knew she might test positive and have to tell him. What did she gain by hiding.
Besides not being able to go to their children (each one that lives locally had a kid in quarantine), my parents now spent yuntif not together. I just don't get what this virus does to make people stupid

Not to say that its your Dads fault, but if he was very careful he wouldnt come in contact with anyone who might have been exposed at all

I know many people doing this

I know a playgroup in Lakewood that a worker teacher tested positive and the owner of the playgroup kept it under wraps until all the kids went home for yom tov and then notified the parents.  I would never send to this place...

Keeping exposure or infection secret is beyond stupid. This isn't Purim when no-one really knew or understood what was going on.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Iím expecting to get a lot of hate for what Iím going to write but itís the truth and I donít care.

If you live in Lakewood or Brooklyn or Monsey and do not stay in your house then you are fully exposing yourself to COVID positive people regardless to whether you blame it on your worker, kids morah, friend cat, Babysitter aunt. We all learnt that masks and social distancing is the biggest BS out there unless you actually stay in your house away from all people. END RANT

While what youíre saying may be partially true, that is purely the fault of those who are out and about despite testing positive or having been exposed. Donít try to shirk responsibility with ďbut officerĒ arguments. If you knowingly go out exposed/positive and infect someone you are to blame and you are at fault. No ifs, ands, or buts.

As a friend of mine named Chaim once said, ďWho are you trying to fool? Youíre trying to pull a fast one on your Creator? Good luck with that.Ē

Stay home if you are exposed or positive. Donít be a wise guy.

We all learnt that masks and social distancing is the biggest BS out there unless you actually stay in your house away from all people.
The one thing I learned from watching our communities vs. neighboring communities and out of town Frum communities is that obviously masks and SD work. To claim that this showed you otherwise means youíre simply not a bal seichel.

The efficacy of masks and social distancing is not what's being called into question. It's the efficiacy of trying to convince people to comply. Self centered narcissism cloaked as atheistic fatalism under the guise of religion is as rampant as covid.

Since you phrase it as "my dad had a worker" .... makes me think that this is your dad's business (forgive me if I am wrong). So my question is, what happens to this woman, had she said - "I took a covid test, can I stay home or work from home today?" Does she need to take a vacation day? A sick day? Will her pay get docked?

To my knowledge I have never been exposed to anyone COVID positive. My coworker tested positive last week, no one at work was exposed because we have strict guidelines. He got it from a family member that kept it a secret and infected the whole family. If people only got it from immediate family then we wouldnít be seeing an outbreak.

There is a difference to being exposed to someone who might have it, and being indoors with someone all day who does  for sure have it

I think she would have had to take a sick day

What in the world is the point of keeping it secret? ? ? ? This isn't February. We all know what it is and what it's about!!!! There's no shame whatsoever in having it, it's prudent to ADVERTISE it so that everyone could make their own informed decisions!

I really don't want to enter an argument with you on this, but I really don't get why people view the world in such extremes. Where have we gone wrong that there is no such thing as nuance?

Or they just don't have people who tested positive walking around town like nothing happened.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
