Health Ministry said to push for many Green Pass rules to be nixed in a week

Representatives of the Health Ministry in the coronavirus cabinet meeting have recommended that ministers cancel various Green Pass restrictions in a week if morbidity doesn’t start rising again, Hebrew media reports.

They want the move from Green Pass restrictions to “purple badge” restrictions to be in effect for outdoor restaurant spaces, gyms, outdoor attractions, swimming pools, museums and libraries.

Green Pass rules limit entry to public places only to those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine or had the disease in the previous five months.

Purple badge restrictions mean anyone can access those places, provided that basic distancing rules are enforced and that the number of simultaneous customers is limited to prevent overcrowding.
