Note the key words, "if you may have been in a situation where you believe an exposure may have occurred... self-quarantine... for the full 14 days."
Quarantining for the weekend isn’t the @CDCgov recommendation. It’s 2 weeks. Not whatever you feel like doing. You know the opposite of how you run @CityofHoboken. Since you’ve been on this high horse trying to dictate what to do, let’s see you actually practice what you preach.— #DaysSinceHobokenFlooded (@HobokenFlood) September 12, 2020
Then Ravi Bhalla was reminded, the public could expect to see him again on September 25th, the full 14 days later, per CDC guidelines:
We’ll see you on September 25! In case you need guidelines by an actual authority and not just what you decide on a whim. Here’s a link for your convenience! https://t.co/9V2NnYtAPl— #DaysSinceHobokenFlooded (@HobokenFlood) September 12, 2020
Another Twitter comment put the same notification in pictures, apparently in the belief this would make it easier for Ravi Bhalla to understand his own policy.
Ravi Bhalla is also apparently breaking CDC provisions.
It was also pointed out that maybe a $250 fine would be warranted against those like Ravi Bhalla who blew off the 14 day quarantine.
Hoboken Patch earlier reported this bit of Ravi Bhalla doublespeak issued on his behalf by Vijay Chaudhuri:
At least one council member and this Horse also commented on Twitter to Ravi Bhalla on this contradiction but it's not clear now to what extent.
Ravi Bhalla deleted the tweet.
If you see Ravi Bhalla walking around Hoboken, remind him that he is breaking quarantine and tell him to go back into isolation until September 25th.
A countdown clock is now installed on the top right of the page for the CDC recommended self-quarantine outstanding for Ravi Bhalla.
Talking Ed Note: When it comes to the pandemic rules, follow Ravi Bhalla's no. 1 dictum: "Quarantine for thee, not for me."
Ravi Bhalla deleted his tweet of last week. One can presume, the City of Hoboken quarantine policy has also been deleted.
Well at least for Ravi Bhalla. Ravi Bhalla is no. 1.
