Rollout of electronic bracelets for quarantine indefinitely delayed — TV

A pilot program forcing unvaccinated travelers entering Israel to self-isolate with an electronic bracelet has been postponed indefinitely, according to Channel 13. No reason is given.

According to the government proposal, travelers would receive the bracelet upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport, in a bid to prevent violations of quarantine. The bracelet would be worn on either the wrist or the ankle and would monitor the wearer’s location via Bluetooth and GPS, connected to a person’s cellphone.
