WARNING NOT TO LET OUR GUARDS DOWN “LET’S PLAY IT SAFE” – UPDATE
NOTE: WE LEFT OLDER CHARTS ON FOR COMPARISON SO PLEASE SEE DATES TO SEE WHAT CHARTS ARE CURRENT
It is a great feeling to once again see people walking to and from shul on Shabbos. It does give a sense that things are getting “back to normal”.
Should “back to normal” be the goal?
The natural tendency is to as quickly as possible get “back to normal”. Some have suggested that the “normal” was not good or that we should be looking forward to getting “better” as individuals. Perhaps this is our opportunity to improve ourselves and our community.
If getting “back to normal” is our main focus then we could be in for a relapse of this SUPER FLU. No one knows for sure.
We all hear the talk around town: “Masks are a waste.” “Masks are MORE DANGEROUS.” “Gloves or no gloves!?” “This is really not any more dangerous than the flu.” “LA has a different strain than NY had.” WhatsApp groups are suddenly dispensing medical advice and we and our neighbors have become infectious disease experts!
If there is anything we as Torah observant Jews know, it is how to follow rules and listen to our Rabbis. Really it is up to us to use common sense and continue to follow the advice of our Rabbis and Doctors. Keep our masks on, wash hands, and social distance. Let’s not let our guards down!
