Arrivals will not be able to take buses or train home from airport

The Transportation Ministry says public transportation will continue to serve the airport, though travelers arriving from abroad will not be allowed to use it, starting at midnight.

That is when new rules kick in, requiring all those arriving from overseas to quarantine for at least three days. While those arriving from “red” countries with high infection rates will need to quarantine in special hotels, others will be allowed to return home to isolate.

“The idea is that those in quarantine won’t be able to take public transportation from the airport,” Health Ministry head Nachman Ash tells Army Radio. “Everyone will need to take a car or a taxi by themselves or with family.”

Those arriving to the airport by ground will still be able to do so by bus, train or shared taxi.
