Police to task 1,500 officers with enforcing COVID restrictions

Police say they will task 1,500 officers and hundreds of inspectors nationwide with enforcing coronavirus restrictions, as daily cases reach their highest rate since February.

Stepping up the enforcement, the cops will focus on face masks where they’re required, mandatory quarantine and Green Pass rules conditioning access to some public spaces on vaccination, recovery, or negative test.

The Israel Police also says in its statement that each district will open a special command room on the matter.
