State asks High Court to allow use of cellphone locations to enforce quarantines

The state asks the High Court of Justice to lift an injunction on police using Israelis’ cellphone locations to track whether people are breaking quarantine.

“The Health Ministry sees great importance in the existence of this inspection activity as a part of the state’s entire treatment of the epidemic, particularly in light of the apparent existence of widespread violations, both of the quarantine orders and the new limitations on activity (even though these won’t be enforced under these ordinances),” a statement from the State Prosecutor’s office says.
