Citing rising coronavirus cases, the Health Ministry issues a statement advising Israelis considered at risk to wear face masks indoors.

Noting indoor masking is no longer required except in limited circumstances, the ministry says it still recommends that people at greater risk from COVID-19 put on a mask inside.

“We have moved to a stage in which we live alongside the virus, but the virus doesn’t take account of our desire to live alongside it,” the statement says.
