Nearly every frum community said that. Not only because it's dangerous for locals but it's a chillul Hashem to see out of state plates in front of frum homes or frum people coming to overwhelmed medical facilities.

Everyone should be saying that and staying home. Not sure why is is a chiddush or up for negotiation.

But hey, there is no accounting for stupidity and selfishness.

The problem with quarantine is that every member of that household also has to quarantine or it's useless. How many are going to do actually do that? Meaning no going to grocery store.

We did that for past two weeks as our of town kids came, we haven't left the house for anything at all.

Same for Cleveland. Not sure why Florida got so much hate for it (they have the biggest influx typically for pesach, which is why they had to publicize it so early and so widely).

Florida has a high density of elderly people many of which have significant medical problems. Its a unique situation that people dont seem to grasp .

It also attracts more tourists than just about anywhere in America.

I think Florida got so much flack specifically in the mikvah thread (which I agree was a smart move to deter visitors). I'm a Baltimore gal and I am so happy the rabbanim are stepping up to that plate to make such statements.

I'm in Baltimore too and I have been very very very impressed with our Rabbis!

Yesterday Baltimore vaad said no one shld be getting together from in town or out of town. Even family. (I wld recommend asking abt special circumstances though). And the governer said we must shelter in place (which is really no diff from before except now u can get fined)

I just got the bad news today, that a second cousin who I used to play with as a kid because we are the same age, passed away on Shabbos from the virus. He lived in Florida and had been fit and in good health. No medical problems. It's hard to believe he's gone. He was the guy who came to the Seder dressed as Moshe Rabbeinu and showered the guests with you frogs.
That virus is already bad news in Florida.
