I think they are going to wait until the government tells them to close. All of these school administrators are under so much pressure to stay open and they don't want the responsibility of making the decision to close. Easier to blame it on BDB or Cuomo.
I don't think ours will close unless Cuomo says they have to. NYC is definitely on an upwards swing, but when I go to covidactnow.com it's not out of control yet. Only a few tenths up. If we can get it in check, I am hopeful that we can at least make to Halloween, if not Thanksgiving.
I heard Rodeph was closing. Anyone know if that's true?
Yes, closed until Monday for community testing, maybe closed after that pending results.
That's surprising because it's Reform. this sounds like an orthodox community outbreak. Even Heschel I would expect to go down before Rodeph.
yikes. remember the poor guy from new rochelle who unknowingly spread it all over westchester and the city? hoping that doesn't happen again through synagogues etc
Remember how it came into the city? Everyone was freaking out about Chinatown but genetics showed the NYC epidemic came via Europe. Moral being, assumptions are tricky.
Everyone acts as if he was the initial spreader, no one knows who he got it from! He was just the first to get tested.
Heschel has a large Israeli contingent, I would bet will go back to Israel over the holidays which is a risk.
Israel is under quarantine for the 3 weeks of the holidays. It's hard to even get in there.
I think this was v much tied to jewish holidays and orthodox community and is a little fire that will soon go out if people listen, OR the damage is done and it's spreading everywhere now and we will soon find out
More Jewish holidays coming. Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Those areas should seriously be cordoned off.
