The Health Ministry will reportedly suggest during the coronavirus cabinet meeting this evening that the period of quarantine for those exposed to COVID or returning from abroad be shortened from 14 to 7 days.

According to Channel 12 News, the move has been agreed to by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz. If the suggestion is approved, quarantine would be shortened to one week if a negative test result is first obtained.
