Economy Minister Orna Barbivai calls on private companies to allow their employees to work from home where possible, as COVID cases in Israel continue to skyrocket.

The statement has the support of the head of the Histadrut, the country’s largest labor union.

“The government is leading a policy of [preserving] the economy alongside COVID with as little harm as possible to businesses and workers,” says Barbivai.

There are currently 116,411 active COVID cases in Israel, as new infections continue to skyrocket and a shortage of tests worsens.
