After chaos, Health Ministry says new Green Pass rules to take effect Thursday

The Health Ministry says in a statement that due to the crashing of its website and app as Israelis rushed to download new Green Passes, existing vaccination or recovery certificates will still be used to allow access to various public spaces until Thursday.

“To allow the public time to get organized, enforcement of the Green Pass won’t be conducted during these days,” the statement says.

The ministry says that 1,030,000 new Green Passes have been issued. The old passes were originally due to expire today.
