The Corona Virus Information Information Center is updating the isolation plan for those entering Israel starting today (Wednesday).
In case of exposure to verified corona virus (without distinction between variants):
• Vaccinated / recovering (according to Ministry of Health definitions) will perform an institutional (non-home) antigen test:
– Negative result – they will continue with the routine of their lives and will be exempt from isolation.
– Positive result – will perform a PCR test and be in isolation until a result is obtained:
(-) Negative result – they will continue with the routine of their lives and will be exempt from isolation.
(-) Positive result – will go into isolation for 10 days until recovery with a doctor’s approval, and provided that in the last three days of this period, no symptoms have been detected that prevent a recovery approval.
During the seven days after exposure, it is recommended to avoid being in crowded places for recreation and leisure, and contact with high-risk populations.
Also, a vaccinated / recovering person, caring for a minor under the age of 12 or helpless who has been verified for corona, will stay in isolation until a negative result is obtained in a pcr test he will perform from the last day of isolation of the patient he is treating.
• Unvaccinated / not recovering (according to the definitions of the Ministry of Health) – will perform a PCR test:
– Negative result – will be in isolation for 14 days from the last contact with the patient and the possibility of shortening isolation with a negative PCR test result on the 7th day.
Positive result – will go into isolation for 10 days until recovery with a doctor’s approval, and provided that in the last three days of this period, no symptoms have been detected that prevent the recovery approval.
Also, a person who is not immunized / has not recovered, cares for a minor under the age of 12 or is helpless who has been verified in Corona, will enter after the end of treatment, for isolation, for 14 days with the possibility of shortening isolation with a negative PCR test result on day 7.
Funding for the antigen test in case of exposure to verified, will be state-funded.
The policy will take effect from today (Wednesday) at midnight, 30/12/2021 (on the night between Wednesday and Thursday) subject to the signature of the Director General of the Ministry of Health on the relevant order and with the approval of the Knesset Health Committee.
