Unvaccinated travelers will need quarantine tracking devices — report

The government will reimpose rules forcing unvaccinated people entering Israel to wear tracking devices, as authorities seek to up enforcement of quarantine requirements, the Walla news site reports.

According to the report, the Health Ministry is already in touch with possible suppliers of trackers, assured that it will have support to pass regulations governing their use, now that ultra-Orthodox, or Haredi, parties are out of the ruling coalition.

The trackers will be disposable, Walla says. However, they will not be appropriate for children under age 14, despite the fact that adolescents make up the lion’s share of unvaccinated people in Israel.

Channel 12 news reports that fines for those who travel to restricted countries will be in the thousands of shekels.
