  1. Mahwah schools closed for 2 weeks…..

  2. how long are we going to perpetuate this scam?

  3. Guess what it’s no scam. In the past week I’ve just lost two people close to me. Some people think this disease is a joke it’s no joke. You do not want to get this Covid especially if you have other underlying issues with your health. Once it gets into your lungs forget it it’s very hard fighting it. And the numbers are climbing back up again because people like you think it’s a joke. OK if you think it’s a joke you go into a hospital with someone has tested positive and you hang out around them with no mask, don’t wash your hands, and someone will see. Yes more people have died so far from all the viruses we get it. But we just lost 1 million Throughout the world think about that. Less than a year, Maybe it was planned.

  4. Its a scam.
    People get a virus.
    People get better or they die.
    Just like other viruses.
    They are ALL VERY serious matters, especially for those who are compromised.

    The reaction, regulations and response to COVID is the overblown scam, power grab and political club being exploited to control the citizenry and push forth political aganda.
