Israel is expected to soon drop the COVID-19 mask requirement on flights and at Ben Gurion Airport, Channel 12 news reports.

According to the network, the Health Ministry is expected to soon decide on the matter and the mandate could be scrapped as soon as May 20.

The indoor mask rule ended last month, but continues to remain in effect during air travel and at hospitals and senior living facilities.
