has anyone been able to find J&J cream cheese and vegetable cream cheese in Lakewood?
FYI Mehadrin is EXACTLY the same and made in the same dairy.

I'm confused, what do rabbanim have to do with the decision making process of whether to go to someone?
Without answering your question, I'd like to point out that many of the Lakewood doctors signed the letter as well.
I posted the letter above.

Yes, and they say that if you have a question based on individual circumstances you should speak to you DOCTOR.

I personally called two prominent Lakewood rabbonim and asked if a young family can go to another young family (no one over 35-year-old in either family). They both said that they cannot answer but implied that it's wrong, and they both said to call a doctor.

Exactly, so people should stop saying my Rav told me this, My Rav told me that. The rabbanim can say one thing and one thing only, (which they have been saying) "Listen to the medical professionals"
So speak to your Doc. not your Rav.

If for example two families had the virus meaning every single family member had symptoms and some even tested positive and now after two and half weeks of being quarantined their all feeling fine-
What would be the reason to not have these two families pair together for Yom TOV ?

Signed by 4 Doctors, I'm sure you are aware there are many other (Very Prominent) Doctors in town, one of whom told me it is completely ok for me to go to my Parents for YT.

Lakewood is politics. I know a few prominent rabbanim that allow going away to parents/in-laws.

There are definitely unique situations and it's possible that a Rav & Dr would allow it for specific individuals. But it's not what I'm hearing from anyone. Could be @elya is such..

The situation is fluid. Many Doctors who were OK with people going away originally are now retracting. Including Dr S. who was somewhat OK with this last week is now saying NO WAY. STAY HOME.

Recheck with your Dr and Rav.

As well as called a prominent Rav in Lakewood to ask if it is ok to follow my Dr. direction, and I was told it is.

Forget about doctors, how old are your parents? Even if a Doctor told me its OK, Why would i risk going to anyone thats in an older age category?
