In the latest update from the Gedaliah Society in conjunction with Dr. Eli Rosen, they warn the community of a “worrisome increase” in new Covid-19 cases in the Crown Heights community.
In the past few days we have seen a dramatic and worrisome increase in new cases of COVID in our community. These are occurring in both children and adults. Overwhelmingly this has been in those who have not been previously ill. We hope we are not standing on the brink of a serious outbreak, but we must act with caution as though we are. We urge those above age 50 who have not previously been sick with COVID to shelter in place, at least for the time being until we can assess the situation further. Over the next few days we hope to have clarification as to the nature of the current resurgence; as such: We strongly recommend those in this category to not attend shul, simchas, family gatherings, and the like.
