Ministers Vote to Reopen Grades 7-10 and Ease other Restrictions from Sunday
Despite a slight rise in coronavirus infections, ministers on Monday backed sticking to the plan to gradually reopen Israel’s economy, which will see restaurants and hotels open their doors to the vaccinated next week, and reportedly moved to reopen Ben Gurion Airport to Israeli travelers.
The next stage of the government’s reopening plan, scheduled for around March 7, includes allowing students in grades 7-10 to return to school in low-infection areas, reopening restaurants and cafes, permitting hotels and event venues to open in accordance with Health Ministry guidelines, and easing limitations on gatherings.
The Prime Minister’s Office said following a Monday night cabinet meeting that ministers had voted in favor of implementing the plan. (TOI / VFI News)
