And who is actually going to enforce this law and arrest haredi mohels who will just continue with business as usual ? Is the NYPD going to assign cops to attend every Bris Mila to interview the parents and make sure the law has been obeyed?

You never know they might just do that.

I guess the issue will come up when a baby get sick

The regulation (and it isn't a law from the legislature but rather a regulation from a city agency like a parking ticket) is utterly unenforceable. It's been ignored since day 1. There isn't a single mohel asking for this form to be signed.

And if a parent was asked they would never answer the department of health if asked whether their child got metzitza. The parents would defend the mohel even if there was a question if the child got some infection. This was shown the last time it happened the parent of the infected child stopped answering the city's question and wouldn't even say who the mohel was! (The city never found out.)

David

Yet another example of the frumma not following Halacha. Since this practise is not part of Halacha and is based on a medical belief now known to be false it should be abandoned immediately.
