Bennett decides on new virus rules for malls, traveling – The Times of Israel

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, and health professionals, after a joint meeting, decide on new virus containment measures.

A “Green Pass,” indicating up-to-date vaccination or recovery from the virus, will be required to shop at malls. Unvaccinated people will only be allowed into essential businesses, such as pharmacies, inside malls.

Travelers returning from “red” countries who are vaccinated will be required to quarantine at home, and unvaccinated arrivals will need to quarantine in designated hotels.

The new rules will go into effect on Friday.

Mall operators say the rules will reduce revenue by 30% and vow to appeal the move.

Channel 12 says more countries will be designated as “red” high risk areas tomorrow.
