Health Ministry to require quarantine for all travelers from 7 virus-hit nations

Chezy Levy, the director-general of the Health Ministry, signs a public health order requiring all travelers — including those vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 — from seven countries dealing with coronavirus outbreaks to quarantine for 10-14 days upon entering the country.

The countries are Ukraine, Ethiopia, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico and Turkey.

The Health Ministry says the order, which still requires Knesset approval, will enter into effect on Monday, May 3.
