Deputy AG says local authorities can’t bar the unvaccinated from schools

Deputy Attorney General Raz Nizri has warned local authorities that they aren’t allowed to bar unvaccinated teachers, staff and students from entering education institutions, regardless of whether it is a private or state-affiliated institution.

In a letter to lawyers who contacted him reported by Hebrew media, Nizri says he has made that legal opinion known to municipalities’ legal advisers.

“According to the current legal situation, local councils aren’t allowed to take the law into their hands and independently establish rules to limit the entry of education workers into education institutions,” he writes.
