Following a consistent reduction in the rate of Covid-19 infection in Israel, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced that from next week on Tuesday, June 1, all restrictions on locations and events in Israel will be subject to a green pass (vaccinated entry limited) and a purple badge (distance and number limits) will be canceled.
Masks will continue to be mandatory in enclosed public spaces, although the Ministry of Health will also discuss abolishing this obligation. However, restrictions on non-Israeli travelers entering Israel will remain in place and will be further tightened if necessary.
“Israel is back to normal,” Edelstein said. “Less than six months ago, we launched a vaccination campaign. Through the excellent work of health system staff – health funds, hospitals, Magen David Adam, Magen Israel and Health Ministry staff – and the incredible response from Israeli citizens, we have implemented the best vaccination in the world. time we reap the fruits of vaccination with little morbidity. “
“Still, a return to normal comes with a provision,” Edelstein added. “The Ministry of Health is working to maintain the green situation in Israel and we will continue to monitor the situation widely to prevent an outbreak. Of course, if there is another outbreak, we will be forced to go backwards.”
“I urge all Israelis not to travel to countries with high rates of infection and to follow the warnings of the Ministry of Health about travel. Even in countries where you can fly, it is important to keep social distance. Upon return to Israel, the obligation remains to be especially careful adhering Maintaining a low infection rate is up to us.
In the past seven days, 190 new Covid-19 cases have been reported in Israel, compared to 221 in the previous seven days, the Ministry of Health reports. 5.44 million Israelis received at least one vaccine, including 5.11 million, who received two stab wounds.
