The government is reportedly recommending that when Green Pass rules renew — conditioning access to public spaces on proof of vaccination or recovery, or a negative test — they will be in effect for anyone aged 3 and up, a major policy change.
The state will fund any tests for children aged 3-11, while tests for those aged 12 and up will have to be privately paid for. That is an attempt to persuade more people aged 12 and up to get vaccinated.
According to the recommendations reported by various Hebrew media outlets, the Green Pass rules will be in effect for the vast majority of businesses, and public and private institutions, including swimming pools, gyms, academic campuses, all culture and sports events, conferences, exhibitions, museums, libraries, restaurants, hotels and more.
The upcoming restrictions could also see the return of caps on gatherings, according to the report: Up to 50 people in indoor areas, and up to 100 people outside.
