Making a Wedding in a week (in monsey), do you think I’ll have to delay?
No no and no. Would u delay cuz there are pple walking around monsey with the flu? U dont push off a mitzva.
If you don’t serve fountain soda it will be fine
Is Monsey anticipating inclement weather next week?
Ask a shailoh to your LOR.
My question is if people will show up or they’ll be too scared especially after the news on Friday that a waiter in Monsey that was by 3 events the past week was diagnosed with the Coronavirus as reported by Kol Haolom
You don’t cancel a wedding. But you may want to do a smaller wedding. Talk to your rov.
If you trust all the guests you’ve invited to exercise common sense and are confident that none have been in known locations of virus exposure, than certainly proceed if your rav agrees. If not, you may want to consider a smaller event with just family and close friends and delay the big reception until sometime later.
practically speaking ; if its a heimishe wedding expect a full house … if you are from a more modern / american community just lower the number of seats by 10% and you will have a beautiful simcha
People should minimize crowds. Close contact = viral spread.
I don’t have an answer, but the only consideration is the medical risk to the chosson and kallah. A possibly lethal infection is no way to start a marriage.
