The authorities of the country for a long time considered another easing of the quarantine but decided to wait until the end of the national holidays
Israel, where vaccination has shown incredible success in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic, continues to relax quarantine restrictions вЂ“ the country cancels the requirement to wear a mask in the open air.
This is reported by the Jerusalem Post.
"The masks are designed to protect us from the coronavirus. After our doctors came to the conclusion that they are no longer needed in the open air, I decided to make an appropriate decision," Israeli Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said on April 15.
He stressed that this was possible after the reduction in the incidence of COVID-19 due to the national immunization campaign.
At the same time, the requirement to wear a mask remains in force for closed rooms.
The Israeli authorities have been discussing this step for the past few weeks but decided to do it after two important holidays вЂ“ Holocaust Memorial Day and Independence Day, which this year were celebrated on April 8 and 14, respectively.
Recall that thanks to the positive trend in the fight against COVID-19, Israel has developed a plan to open the borders to foreign citizens. This will happen in several stages.
We also wrote that some hospitals in the country do not even have patients with coronavirus-because of this, departments for COVID patients are being closed.
