Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is reportedly considering lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions by the end of the month.

According to reports, Health Ministry experts are slated to meet this evening to formulate a final plan to be presented at a hearing tomorrow with Bennett and other government officials.

The plan, which Bennett is said to favor, would include reopening Israel even to unvaccinated tourist children, canceling the “Green Pass” requirement for all events, and potentially lifting the indoor mask mandate within a few weeks.
