Ministers approve reopening eateries, more venues starting tomorrow

Ministers have approved — after several delays that have been widely criticized — the next phase of the reopening of the economy after the third coronavirus lockdown.

Event halls will be allowed to open with 50% capacity and up to 300 guests.

Restaurants will be able to serve up to 100 customers indoors with up to 75% capacity, only for those with Green Passes indicating they have been immunized against COVID-19. Outdoors, customers can be served without a Green Pass.

Israelis will be allowed to travel to the country from seven destinations, with a requirement to isolate with electronic monitoring.

There will no longer be a requirement to measure the temperature of customers at the entrance to public places and businesses.
