That’s a lie. The Amish community has suffered from COVID in numbers comparable to other communities.

Can you show us a statistic showing how many people have had an undocumented Covid case like myself? Or am I the only one?

I would bet that the number of Covid cases are well over half the country already.


We will be much safer after everyone else gets Covid.

Amish community in Pennsylvania becomes first in US to achieve herd immunity after reopening churches led to 90% of households being infected with the virus last year
The Plain community in Lancaster County has become the 'first to achieve her immunity,' according to a local administrator of a medical center in the area Allen Hoover of the Parochial Medical Center said that 90% of households became infected with virus when they resumed church services late last spring As Hoover observed, faith in herd immunity prompted members of community to relax on key mitigation efforts such as masking and social distancing
Amish community may have reached coronavirus ‘herd immunity,’ health official says
https://www.foxnews.com/health/amish...-official-says

March 29
An Amish community in Pennsylvania may have become the first group in the U.S. to achieve herd immunity, a local health official claims....
But Hoover said that it’s impossible to know the full extent of the virus outbreak since he estimates that fewer than 10 percent of patients displaying symptoms consented to being tested.
The medical center saw on average nearly a dozen infections a day, or around 15 ercent of the patients it serves daily, Hoover said.
While infections ebbed through the summer, before picking up again in the fall, Hoover said new cases are now far and few in between.
The center hasn’t had a patient present with virus symptoms in roughly six weeks, Hoover said....

4 Reasons Why Amish Are Skipping The Vaccine

1. “Lifestyle” protection – Amish believe that their active lifestyles and homegrown food, along with working around livestock, keeps them healthy and their immune systems robust.

2. A belief the disease is not so bad – some Amish were hospitalized, but we learn that “this year hasn’t seen much more illness than others…in terms of people not feeling well enough to be out and about. Many people lost their sense of smell and taste, and some felt like they had the flu, but few felt worse than that.”

Like in other Amish communities, it is thought that “many people in the community did contract the coronavirus at some point.” Few have been tested, unless hospitalized. But a local funeral director confirms that there has been a “lack” of deaths due to COVID there.

3. A belief in natural immunity – as it’s believed that most have had COVID, there is a belief that natural immunity protects them. So what is the point of getting a vaccine, the thinking goes. This is also similar to other Amish communities.

4. Concern over long-term side effects – Amish are described as “wary of potential long-term side effects” of the vaccine, preferring to “get sick and recover”. The vaccine is seen as something like the flu shot and other inoculations, which most Kalona Amish do not receive.

It's not a lie dufus, It's a common joke.

That said, what little we do know about Amish infections is minimal at best, doubtful art worse as Mr. Wonder has factually pointed out

Still, the Amish are not likely to accept a vaccine mandate.

Still doesn't answer the question of the OP <> Why no warnings posted about the side effects of the Covid Vaccines???


Glad to see you are awake by noon today.. Alert no, awake yes.

I have no doubt that CS, like many on the left, despises the Amish, along with all other believers.

So what ever they do, he will be against it. It doesn't matter if works, he will not be a part of it.

As I live in an area heavily populated with Amish and Mennonite populations, I can attest that I have not noticed any change to their routines since the start of Covid. I don't see them avoiding stores or wearing masks other than when it was required. Also, as news about people dying from any ailment or accident spreads like wildfire here, I have yet to hear of a single Amish or Mennonite death from Covid.

I know this is all anecdotal, but it does support the notion that the Amish and Mennonite communities have weathered this disease with relative ease.

You want to see leftist heads spin? Just say that God blesses those that believe.

Thank you for admitting that the "preventive" measures being forced upon the masses don't work since places where no "preventive" measures are taking place show no difference...
