Channel 12 news quotes unnamed senior Health Ministry officials as calling to expand use of the “Green Pass” at performances, restaurants, hotels and gyms, in light of the continued rise in new coronavirus cases.

The pass limits entry at various establishments to those who are vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19.

The network also says Greece, Thailand and the Netherlands are expected to be added to a list of countries from which all arriving travelers must quarantine, even if they are vaccinated or recovered.

Additionally, the network says that, starting on Wednesday, police will begin enforcing the new “Revelry Pass” for weddings, parties and other celebratory indoor gatherings.

Owners of event halls where the rules are violated will be subjected to NIS 5,000 ($1,520) fines.
