The government commission to combat COVID-19 approved new restrictions in Israel on the night of Thursday, August 12, due to the coronavirus situation. As a result, the “green standard” provisions are to be extended to all sectors of the economy, the Prime Minister’s Office announced on its official website.
Only large shopping malls will not be affected by the rules.
“The green standard includes the mandatory presentation of a certificate of vaccination (“green passport”), or recovery from COVID-19, or a negative test result for coronavirus infection at the entrance to mass events,” the office specified.
A decision has been made to limit attendance at mass events and strengthen compliance monitoring.
It is assumed that shopping centers and stores will operate according to the occupancy of the premises.
The new restrictions will take effect on August 18.
Earlier it was reported that 80,000 coronavirus vaccines worth $1.8 million will be destroyed in Israel.
