If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Firedmans shul in Cedarhurst (Khal Bai Yisroel): It has come to our attention that a member of the Shul who was in Shul on Shabbos morning was taken to the hospital overnight with Corona-like symptoms. At this point we do not have confirmation that this individual actually has Coronavirus. He is being tested, and we will update you once we have more information. You should assume that you had contact with this individual and take the proper precautions.

Are all the stores in town only allowing a few people in at a time? There are long lines to get into the store by GG and Kol Save

I only heard of GG (which also owns Kol Save) limiting entrance. I was able to enter Seasons last night without any wait.

The Red Shul:

We were unfortunately just informed that Rav Yochanan Cohen tested positive for COVID-19. We are sharing this information with you, with his permission, and with the understanding that you may want to consult with your medical professional. Additional information has been published by Achiezer and other organizations in regard to standards for self-quarantine and other appropriate distancing measures, and we encourage all, especially for those who were in contact with Rav Yochanan over the recent days, to review such information together with your doctor at this time and take any and all appropriate action. Rav Yochanan was last in Shul on Thursday night and he has advised that he began feeling unwell after Shabbos. His name for tefillos is Rav Yochanan ben Rochel Yocheved. Everyone should stay safe and should have refuos.

Safer to stay home. Ask your Rov, cleaning your car might be a chumra you can forgo this year.

ETA: Iíll say it differently. If your objective is to obliterate chometz from your car, you can get rid of any visible chometz yourself, you donít need anyone else or special equipment for that.

If I wanted a Halachic analysis, I would have spoken to my Rov.

And as an aside, you should probably speak to yours. Cars need to be cleaned very well even from crumbs, as brought in m.b. in name of chayei Odom. Even if crumbs are batul, since most people use their car during Yom Tov, there us a chance one might come to eating these crumbs, i.e. if your Pesach food gets into contact with the crumbs or if they somehow get kicked into Pesach food by a kid. If you don't clean your car well, you will end up with issues.

I was asking about company who might come to my house and clean my cars. I assume if they come they are healthy. Although in our area, most people are in one of three categories, either they already had the virus, they are currently sick with the virus, or thg they are asymptomatic with the virus. It's all over here now.

There is available right now a free food distribution on Beach 19th street, in front of Yeshiva Darchei Torah. There are eggs, potatoes, sweet potatoes, apples and oil. Available on a first come first served basis. Please practice social distancing at all times.

wouldn't recommend it now but the best bet would be to get some workers from the train station who can move it for you
will be much cheaper

Silver star Urgent care by Costco parking lot just announced that they have drive through testing for covid. You need to call a number to do an assessment and they will schedule you when to come.

Had Nassau joined NYC in banning Styrofoam? I used to see foam products at Costco Lawrence, but now it's all gone and replaced with paper products.
