Officials set to ease quarantine rules — report

The cabinet is set to significantly ease quarantine rules, according to Hebrew media reports.

Channel 12 news reports that a current rule requiring a vaccinated person exposed to Omicron to quarantine for a week, pending two negative tests, or two weeks for the unvaccinated, will be rescinded sometime Monday.

Instead, fully vaccinated individuals will be exempt from any quarantine, no matter if their contact was infected with Omicron or not. However, if the Omicron carrier they were exposed to is a member of their household, the vaccinated person will still need to quarantine for seven days.
