Lakewood is politics.
Tell that to the relatives of dead people.
Some of those lives could have been saved if people would just stay home.
Rav Michel Silber recently said that for the first time we are being tested with the Nisayon of Retzichah - and we are failing!

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.
That was exactly one of points I quoted above from senior medical professionals.
Maybe publicizing this story will get a few more people to take this seriously and save one more life.

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.
Ok, I will post the letter.
See for yourself.

FYI Mehadrin is EXACTLY the same and made in the same dairy.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

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 ?
