The “happy character” takes effect: First celebrations are being held tonight (Wednesday) under the new restrictions. Police forces have inspected hundreds of banquet halls alongside the director general of the Ministry of Homeland Security Tomer Lotan. No unusual events were reported during the reviews.
Referring to the police enforcement patrols, Lotan said: “In my tour of the banquet halls tonight, I was impressed by the implementation of the ‘happy character’ in the field. The banquet hall owners make great efforts to ensure compliance and demonstrate responsibility and control over the incident.
“I received reports of police arriving at banquet halls all over the country along with information and preliminary dialogue with the hall owners. I am glad we took the issue of enforcement and through cooperation and dialogue we prevent the spread of the virus. I am proud and thank the Israel Police for the efficient and important work,” he added.
Also, the instructions received by the owners of the halls and event gardens indicate that entry to events with more than 100 people will only be possible by presenting the “green mark” to the vaccinated and recovering. In addition, it will be possible to enter by means of a standard corona test up to 72 hours before the start of the event or by means of a quick test, 24 hours after the start of the event. Children up to the age of one are not required to have a “green mark” or tests to enter.
Event participants must wear masks in enclosed spaces and it is forbidden to bring in or provide a service to a person who is not wearing a mask and is obligated to do so. There are no new guidelines for dancing, food or the amount of guests. The owners of the halls are also obliged to appoint a staff member who will be responsible for keeping the rules.
Earlier tonight, addressed Ami Cohen, From the owners of Sei Halls, in an interview with Anat Davidov on the show “Where’s the Money” on 103FM Radio The happy character “and said that this is” the most unhappy daughter he can be. “Cohen explained that the new character brings with it more severe restrictions than the” green character “, which the government has not yet imposed on the rest of the economy: Green character. ”
Cohen elaborated on why he thinks the “happy character” is more serious than the original “green character”: “Enforce one hundred percent. It’s just very difficult.” He further noted that now the owners of the halls will have to employ at their own expense a special inspector who will check that the invited siblings are indeed vaccinated, corona recoverers or have a negative check.
Later, Cohen referred to the matter of the masks and said that he would not let guests remove them, except in the eating areas. At the same time he criticized and said that it is not fair that the owners of the halls should be subject to a fine for any guest who improved the regulations on his own: “Why do I have to pay the fine? It does not apply. If someone takes off a mask in the mall, only he is responsible.” .
Finally, Cohen said that the impact of the “happy character” is already being felt in the field. According to him, cancellations of events scheduled months in advance are beginning to be recorded: “In our future diary, we are already seeing the apprehension, the going backwards of the couples. We have no choice, we need to contain it.” Cohen concluded: “This is an injury of hundreds of thousands a month.”
