    I can’t get past the first “Whereas” without zoning out.

  • um.... says:

    Someone please explain why oh why are daycares still OPEN??!

    • shimmy says:

      Because the gedolim have said that learning should continue in yeshiva and the government has not banned that medium at this time.

      • justme says:

        are Daycares learning torah? Last I checked, colors and shapes aren’t exactly under that catagory.
        Daycares are open because we are living in the bubble of denial.Once this hits home a bit harder, you can be sure they will all close.

    • Lakewood Mom says:

      Many reputable day care centers have closed. Many parents started keeping the kids home before they closed.

    • me says:

      Because its not dangerous for children. Any parent who is nervous can keep their kid home. (The virus cant travel through your locked door)
      There’s no reason that you should care if others send their healthy children to daycare unless you are a teacher & would rather clean for Pesach (while collecting a check from parents who are forced to take off to watch their kids)

      • NYJ says:

        the daycare teachers also need to take off to watch their kids. They are no different than any other workers.

  • yottle says:

    According to a leading local doctor and the esteemed Dr. Paul Offit, this panic is unwarranted, and indeed according to the NJ Constitution “people have the right freely to assemble together” (Article 1-18).
    As Ben Franklin famously said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

      um.. : are you a playgroup morah by chance? LOL

    • Beetle says:

      Surely that attitude will change once a vaccine is developed. Viruses become more dangerous after 8pm and once there is a vaccine for them.

  • Makilim says:

    Play groups are open because life has to go on. The government allows it. So no need to go over and beyond. Everybody should take a deep breath and calm down.

    If this crazynist continues Richard Roberts might have to cancel his pesach carnival
