Ministers to mull fresh COVID restrictions as cases soar

The so-called coronavirus cabinet will convene to discuss the reinstatement of COVID restrictions, as infections in Israel hit a four-month high.

The forum of ministers is expected to approve mandatory quarantine for all travelers returning from abroad, including the vaccinated and those who recovered from the virus.

The ministers will also discuss reinstating the Green Pass system, which limits access to many public spaces just to those who are vaccinated, recovered from COVID-19 or have a recent negative test.
