We note, that most Kehillos, including Cleveland, Toronto, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis and Baltimore, are NOT allowing any visitors, most states have legal travel restrictions, some will arrest people who travel from out of state and who do not enter a BRAND NEW 14 day total quarantine (including keeping away from contact with family members) on arrival to the other state.
We Rabbonim and physicians are fully opposed to any travel over Pesach from the Lakewood area under any circumstances. Do not go to your parents, in-laws or other family members for Pesach, stay home.
This applies to the 1st days, last days and Chol Hamoed alike – we reiterate – STAY HOME.
We strongly call on you to make Pesach in Lakewood. We add that with social distancing rules, and the number of infected growing, you CANNOT count on joining with other local families for Pesach either, so please prepare ahead. If you have an individual question regarding your own personal health or family quarantine circumstances, please call your physician.
