Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

Is it ethical to disregard a voluntary travel quarantine? Travel is important but quarantine impractical.
Donít disregard, just donít volunteer...

If your question is because your wife feels uncomfortable with it, IMHO it's not worth it. Better go somewhere that's not in the quarantine ban. Like MA or PA.

Very possibly against Halacha - על המזיק להרחיק את עצמו and breaking a democratic governments quarantine regulation would probably not be considered מהלך כדרכו.

If you have antibodies I think it's OK so long as you avoid crowded indoors spaces like shuls

I served 2 full 14 day quarantine periods.

Thanks but I wasnít asking for halachik advice here. Thatís my LORís job.

The quarantine is voluntary but compliance is expected. I happen to have antibodies but my wife does not. Ridiculous we canít be cleared with a test but I get theyíre not 100% accurate.

I don't think it would be unethical if it's voluntary.
Test is meaningless, if you were infected yesterday, you would test negative today but positive a few days later
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
