Are they also taking responsibility for those that will get sick from reopening?

Really?

What type of question is that? Does Home depot taking responsibility or Costco or target?, a smaller store can prevent the spread of a disease better than a big box store where you have 100 people in the store at once. At the end of the day we live in america and we have the right to work to put food on the table for our family, if you are afraid of getting sick than don’t leave your house. Since when does someone ellses fear of getting an illness restrict our right to provide for our families. If you don’t… Read more »

This commenter either works a government job and is still getting paid for sitting at home, or is 65+ without children and receiving checks every month. They’d be fine continuing until there are no more viruses in the world!

No they are neither, they are simply selfless and no and understand the harm in the virus and rather be safe then sorry!

So how do they pay their bills?

If they feel that it’s unsafe to leave their house, they should stay home indefinitely (assuming their house is fully paid for). Others who are young, healthy and with young children to support must GO BACK TO WORK!

Because if that then why not schools and shuls and no social distance and no masks and just regular like it was before? Where do you draw the line? People really suffered, people died, the world really went through a traumatic experience. Look israel opened and they have 24 new cases.

Copy Israel

Israel slowly opened up its doors, piece by piece, not all at once, and now all stores are open and the numbers bH keep dropping every day. Stores should slowly be allowed to open, first limiting the amount of customers, and if the numbers keep dropping, then more stores etc. The worst is over, bH, and piece by piece is better than all at once.

Have to do like Israel

In Israel they are open sensitbly – taking various precautions, little
by little – and then seeing what happens, testing it out. Masks, social
distancing isn’t thrown out. People who suffered and their fammilies and friends all say, in the frum world and outside – that be careful with this.

To stores
May 21, 2020 5:58 pm

A lawyer said,
The only way to get results with opening stores is to actually open, face tickets and arrest and then have courts overturn the order. That’s what worked in Texas. The Governor may be constricted to keep things closed so opening up all together will work.

Facts
May 21, 2020 6:03 pm

People don’t get into danger for open stores, young people almost unaffected, or close stores for strep or the flue.
People still at risk should follow their personal Doctors advice.
Even if a person gets sick or is at risk, they don’t need to get into danger, look at our President he is taking Hydoxycloroquine and Zink according to his personal Doctors guidelines as a precaution.
So there is no medical real reason or halachic text that I know that says to keep closed in such case.
