The Constitution Committee approved the regulations restricting departure from Israel with the updated list of red states and the extension of the humanitarian exception for relatives demanded by the chairman of the committee MK Karib. The regulations will enter into force upon publication in the coming hours and will be valid for one week.

Ilana Gens, The head of the public health headquarters estimates that the list of red countries will be emptied next week: “It is estimated that next week this list will remain empty because the model is relative and we look at the ratio of morbidity in Israel and the extent of incidence from abroad to other verified morbidity. The less significant its share, then for us there is no epidemiological justification for pursuing a policy of restrictions. ”

In addition to just one week, the committee approved the green label regulations for employees. Chairman MK Gilad Karib shortened the validity of regulations originally intended until January 31 due to the gap he said between easing entry into the trading venues with a temporary green label versus leaving the existing situation of requiring two antigen tests to employees.

The chairman, MK Karib: Obviously the temporary green label is relevant to trade, but to send workers in the same places for two tests? Expand the green mark to thousands of stores over 100m and this means that any employee in such a store can not work in contact with people as long as he has not done 2 antigen tests. “As long as you continue with a green sign in the workplace and allow a temporary green sign at the same time, the justification cannot be understood.” Supported by the regulations: the chairman, MK Gilad Karib, and MK Benny Begin.

In addition, the chairman of the Karib Constitution Committee criticized the government’s assistance program for the tourism industry: “If there is a sixth wave, no restrictions will be approved without an assistance program.” MK Karib made the remarks in a joint discussion with the Economics Committee and the Constitution and Law and Justice Committee to assist the tourism industry and called on the workers of the industry not to change professions; Director General of the Association of Travel Agencies, Tali Laufer“Every employer knows that in times of trouble the Israeli government will abandon it – this is our last call.”
