Ministries agree to limited ‘Green Pass’ plan for weddings

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Economy Minister Orna Barbivai and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz agree to a plan to institute a “happy pass” that will serve as a limited “Green Pass” for weddings and other large indoor events.

The plan, which is slated to come into effect on July 21, will limit large gatherings to only those who are vaccinated, recovered or present a negative COVID test. While the gatherings won’t be limited in size, masks will be mandatory while not eating or drinking.

“Our goal is to allow weddings and celebrations to take place in halls with minimum harm to the events industry and maximum protection of Israeli citizens,” says Bennett.
