over 7 ICU cases in each hospital. The city and Jersey hospitals are seeing many cases as well.

affecting younger people as well and causing more serious symptoms. We have not seen cases here at this time, but it is important to be aware that this is a concern.
It is extremely important for every family to adhere to these basic guidelines in order to
help protect our community and our neighbors from the spread of this virus!
We urge everyone to adhere to the following guidelines:
• Wear a mask any time you are unable to socially distance (as per CDC and NYS
• If you feel ill, such as running a fever or having any other symptoms, please do not
leave your home and certainly take care not to come into close physical contact with other

treatment options with your Doctor.

to school or shul! Parents, please speak to your Doctor if you have any questions and to seek further guidance.
May Hashem continue to watch over all of us and give refuos and yeshuos for all of Klal
Yisroel. May He banish all diseases from our midst and bring the ultimate geulah speedily,
