Nebach. At least do it quietly.

Why is that? I think everyone should consult their physician and Rav as I have.

Where to start?
Did you and your father TEST positive? ( The majority of symptomatic people test negative). Did every single person in yours as well as your fatherís household test positive as well? Is the Rav that you consulted very well-versed in the parsha? Is this the doctor and Rav you would go to if you truly believed you had a life-threatening situation, say a major surgical decision etc. or would you consult the experts in the field and gedolei haposkim. Because that is what we are dealing with. Sakanas nefashos mamish. Iím guessing some on this forum feel you are not taking this with the seriousness it deserves. If all of the above does not apply to you then that is a different story.

 Some rabbannim are letting you go to parents even without any unique situation. They say to keep it quiet because of politics. Maybe the fact that your asking a rav, shows that it means a lot to oneself.
 I think itís debatable whether itís more spread by staying home because your gonna go to  10 stores if itís your first time making Pesach.

Why does he need to answer any of that to you of all people?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Who says he has to answer to me? He has to answer to the unknown people who may pass away because of his little get together. Many others are unfortunately no longer with us because people felt they could make assumptions and be meikel. Some are on life support as we speak.If he is truly comfortable answering to his conscience and his Maker he doesnít need to answer any posters on a forum...

I'm confused, what do rabbanim have to do with the decision making process of whether to go to someone?
In most cases of life & death situations, there are Rabbis involved. They work alongside the doctors to determine how to address the situation from a halacha standpoint.

So the doctor should have time for other things besides every chochom's phone calls? The letter very specifically said to ask a doctor about specific situations. So he did. what do you want from the guy?
The suspicion here is that there was no competent Rov/doctor involved in the decision.

You can always find an off shoot no name person to give you heter, even when every mainstream doctor and Rov are very strong about the widely issued guidelines.

A "private psak" doesn't mean the doctors'/Rovs' name is private. It means the psak was intended for that person only.

*In most cases* Meaning when there are Halachic ramification, which there are none here, this is purely a medical question.

There aren't? Sakanos Nefashos isn't a halachic ramification? V'nishmartem M'oed. . .isn't halachah?

Just curious, do you live in LKWD?

Of course, but how can a Rabbi tell you if its Sakanos Nefashos or not, that is for the medical professionals to decide.

A rabbi comes into the picture when for instance A doctor advises to do a very risky procedure, it might save you but there is a big chance it'll kill you, you need a Rav to decide of you are allowed to take that action.
But if its a direct health question, just like you wont go to your Rav to get diagnosed, the medical world rules here, so if a doctor tells you his professional opinion how is the Rav in a position to tell you otherwise?

I see you avoided my question about living in LKWD. I would guess at this point that you're just trolling the LKWD thread.

Lol, I avoided it because it has absolutely no relevance to the conversation, and btw why are you assuming i'm pro going away? I am so not, I think everyone needs to stay put where ever they are. I am just saying its not for rabbis to decide but for medical professionals, and the letter that came out (the real one...) only states that you must listen to what the doctors say (which is "DO NOT TRAVEL") not their opinion on the matter.
