Police not yet giving fines for not wearing masks as they wait for new forms

Police are not yet giving out fines to Israelis failing to wear face masks as ordered by the government due to officers not yet having received the form for giving out a NIS 200 fine, Channel 12 news reports.

Earlier today, the Israel Police reported that officers have given out 1,277 fines over the past 24 hours to Israelis breaking social distancing regulations aimed at stemming the coronavirus outbreak.

The number represents a dramatic drop in fines from last week when around 3,000 were given a day.
