The Israeli government is again imposing quarantine restrictions on participants in mass events due to the spread of the coronavirus Delta strain. This was reported by The Jerusalem post.
According to innovations, every participant in mass gatherings with over 100 people must have a so-called 'green pass'.
"Until the end of May, a green pass was granted to all individuals who were fully vaccinated, recovered or holders of a negative coronavirus test performed in the previous 72 hours. Access to several venues and activities – including indoor restaurants, gyms and performances – was limited to green pass holders," the statement said.
According to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, participation in mass events will be allowed for vaccinated, recovered and those who take a negative test for Covid-19. This is a mandatory requirement, not a recommendation.
He also called on Israelis who have not yet been vaccinated to be vaccinated immediately.
As it was reported earlier, on June 18, the Israeli government had postponed indefinitely the resumption of travel to the country for foreigners fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
