In pilot program, Israel rolls out electronic bracelet quarantine tracking

Passengers arriving at Ben-Gurion Airport are given the option of quarantining at home with an electronic bracelet, rather than isolation at state-run hotels, in a trial run by the government.

The pilot program will include around 100 people. The bracelets will monitor their location to ensure they are adhering to Health Ministry guidelines through their two-week quarantine period.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, the Israelis are asked for a NIS 1,500 ($453) deposit to receive an electronic bracelet.
