Israel eases coronavirus restrictions on Sunday. Residents who have been vaccinated or have recovered from the disease can return to gyms, hotels, theaters, and sporting events.
Israel can afford to relax a series of measures. As of Sunday, 1.2 million children can return to school today. Markets, stores and malls have also reopened. With the Green Pass that they can view on an application from the Ministry of Health, 3.2 million citizens will have access to a series of facilities: they can return to the gymnasium, hotels, theaters and sporting events.
“You can talk cheerfully about Israel this morning,” Israeli correspondent Anki Reshes said on the Morning Radio 1 program. “
Shopping malls, museums, libraries, and houses of worship are also open to unvaccinated people. Keeping your distance and wearing a mouth mask is mandatory. Synagogues, mosques, and churches are allowed half the normal number of visitors.
The partial reopening of the economy comes a year after the first coronavirus case appeared in Israel. Next month, the government wants to remove more restrictions.
Israel is far ahead in vaccination. About half of the population received at least one dose. One in three Israelis received two injections.
