We must convey to our communities the seriousness of the Coronavirus crisis. Too many members of our community—including rabbonim, roshei yeshiva and possibly admorim—have become infected by the virus already. We must take drastic action to prevent further danger.

Please see the CDC’s 15 day guidelines, which are attached and outlined below. Also attached are the COVID-19 Recommended Preventive Practices and FAQs for Faith-based and Community Leaders.

As a reminder, we highly encourage you to review these recommendations and put them into practice. While the President leads a nationwide response, bringing together government resources and private-sector ingenuity, every American can help slow the virus’ spread and keep our most high-risk populations safe:

  1. Listen to and follow the directions of your state and local authorities.
  2. If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. Contact your medical provider.
  3. If your children are sick, keep them at home. Contact your medical provider.
  4. If someone in your household has tested positive for the Coronavirus, keep the entire household at home.
  5. If you are an older American, stay home and away from other people.
  6. If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition—such as a significant heart or lung disease—stay home and away from other people.

The guidelines build on the CDC’s recommendations to help prevent spread of the virus. Americans should continue practicing strict personal hygiene, including washing hands regularly for at least 20 seconds at a time and wiping down surfaces in the home regularly.

Even if you are young and otherwise healthy, you are at risk—and your activities can increase the risk of contracting the Coronavirus for others. Everyone can do their part.
