Yeshiva Tiferes Yisroel (Chofetz Chaim) in Flatbush has decided to reopen for regular classes on Tuesday.
On Sunday, YWN had posted the news that the school was closed until after Shavuos du to possible cases of Swine Flue in the Yeshiva.
The following is the text of a recording on the Yeshivas phone system:
“Good afternoon. After consulting with medical authorities and infectious disease experts, and after much deliberation, we have concluded that we will reopen Yeshiva tomorrow (that’s Tuesday) at regular time.
This is for all divisions.
This decision is based upon the fact that this flu has spread throughout our community and its yeshivas, and our yeshivas closure will not result in a containment of this flu.
Boruch Hashem this flu has proven not to be dangerous to otherwise healthy people. However if you have a particular circumstance, such as an infant or an elderly person at home please consult your own medical health provider.
VERY IMPORTANT: If your child exhibits ANY flu like symptoms, please do not send him to Yeshiva until you get clearance from the Yeshiva Hanhalla (administration).
Thank you & enjoy your day off.”
