On Tuesday, Israel rolled back almost all of its health regulations, as Omicron-led cases came to a decline.
Perhaps the only COVID-oriented rule to remain in Israel is a requirement to wear a face mask in indoor public spaces. The current requirement for masks in some large outdoor gatherings is canceled. In addition to this, the Green Pass certificate, granted to those who are vaccinated, recovered, or recently tested negative for the coronavirus, will only be needed to enter old age homes.
A Green Pass was previously needed to attend almost any public event and many venues, but the rules of its use have been gradually rolled back as infections dropped, leaving only the care home requirement still in place.
Apart from this, both vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists of all ages will be allowed into the country, as long as they submit a negative PCR test before boarding the flight and take another one after landing in Israel. Citizens will no longer need to test before returning home, but will still need to test upon arrival.
Furthermore, the requirement for children in middle school and high school to take regular twice-weekly antigen tests at home ended, and it will be canceled for younger children on March 10.
