In consultation with professionals, the Committee of Ministers for the Fight Against the Corona Virus (Corona Cabinet) approved the proposal of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health to shorten the length of isolation to 7 days, subject to waiting for a negative test result.

The decision will take effect immediately, in an order signed by the director general of the Ministry of Health.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett: “In order to increase cooperation with the public and public trust, the cabinet decided to allow the isolators to perform a test on the 7th day of their isolation, wait for a negative result and then be released. At the same time, we will increase enforcement on violations in this matter. That is, people who are released without performing an examination – the fine will be NIS 5,000. The goal of the move is to increase the number of people responding to isolation. We set measures that the public can meet. We are coming towards the public. We expect the general public to respond fully, both to isolations and to end-of-period tests, to vaccinations and to wearing masks. Together, we will defeat this epidemic. “

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz: “We shortened the isolation days to 7 days, subject to a negative inspection on the seventh day. The move is intended to increase public cooperation with the guidelines. We are committed to doing everything to maintain public health, with a minimum of disruption to the routine of life. I ask each of you to act with personal responsibility, and those who need isolation – just stay at home. “
