Government set to meet on approving rollback of virus restrictions

A government meeting is scheduled for 8 a.m., when ministers are expected to decide which coronavirus restrictions will be lifted on Sunday as the Israeli economy continues to reopen.

Hebrew-language media reports that the education system and open-air markets will likely not resume operations at this time.

The Finance Ministry and the Health Ministry, which have clashed repeatedly on the matter, are reportedly expected to agree on opening more stores, hairdresser salons — with mask and rubber glove requirements — and returning the takeaway option in food stores.
