A slight uptick in COVID-19 cases has been reported in frum communities, including Crown Heights, Boro Park, Monsey and Flatbush. Some of the cases are people who caught the virus, recovered fully and developed antibodies.
As a result, some mosdos, such as Bobov, are urging community members over the age of 60 and/or those in the high-risk category, to adhere to social distancing rules. In cases where it is not possible, people should at least wear masks.
Below is a flyer put out by Bobov mosdos, noting that some cases in their community have been transferred to the ICU.
As reported last week, the Gedalia society has urged Crown Heights residents to resume mask use in social settings, along with distancing wherever possible. The elderly and vulnerable should avoid 770, and any other crowded situation, where social distancing is not practiced.
