Every single Rav I have spoken to - and I've spoken to quite a few - have all stated unequivocally that everyone should stay home.
Did you not see the numerous letters circulating and hear the robocalls?

People should definitely be asking their own Shaalos. One Rov told me the letter was worded very strongly to discourage people from acting on their own, but people may very well get answers tailored to their situation.

My daughter has a friend who just got married after Purim and was one of the last before they shut down and is making their own pesach.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Interesting data point. An individual (aged 20-35) who was planning to go to their family out of Lakewood for yomtov, felt fine and was going around town as needed. They were tested for covid 19 prior to being involved in a medical procedure (can't elaborate) , and turned up being positive yet with Zero symptoms! (they are now under quarantine.) This is the scary part of the virus. People who feel fine are unintentionally spreading the germs. If this individual would have gone to their family as planned, it could have been fatal to their own elderly/compromised  relatives. For this reason, I totally understand why everyone who goes out must wear gloves and probably a mask. Not only for themselves, but everyone else too.

there are many ppl saying that they have already had covid and are in the clear now so they feel free to go where they want etc.

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

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

"HAD" and is now clear.

I'm confused, what do rabbanim have to do with the decision making process of whether to go to someone?
