Netanyahu said weighting softening ban on in-office workers during lockdown

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is weighing revisions to the lockdown proposal to allow businesses in the private sector to reduce their in-office workers to 30%-40%, rather than banning all workers from going to work as stipulated in the proposal, according to the Walla news site.

He is reportedly mulling the change following criticism from ministers and the head of the Bank of Israel, who warned of serious economic damage.

Netanyahu is asking coronavirus czar Ronni Gamzu and Health Minister Yuli Edelstein whether they oppose the change, it says.
