Vaccinated foreign tourists are not going to be allowed in Israel before August 1, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s government decided Wednesday as Israel faces an increase in coronavirus cases.
In addition, the obligation to wear masks indoors will be restored if the average daily cases will exceed 100 for a week.
“Our goal at the moment, first and foremost, is to protect the citizens of Israel from the Delta variant which is raging in the world,” Bennett said. “At the same time, we want to reduce as much as possible the disruption to the daily life in the country. Therefore, we decided to act as early as possible, right now, so as not to pay a heavier price later on, by taking responsible and quick actions. It is up to us. If we adhere to the rules and act responsibly, we will succeed together.”
“God, we ask for the physical healing of your people, as well as for the health of Israel’s battered economy.”
