Hello John and Doves,
This was published on February 16, 2020 by the State of Israel, Ministry of Health concerning the coronavirus.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
Coronavirus Update – Decisions Made Today 16.02.2020Due to the increase in the number of verified Coronavirus cases in states adjacent to China – We at the Ministry of Health have reached the conclusion that home quarantine orders should be extended to people returning from four more countries in addition to China:
- Hong Kong
This decision is applicable to people landing in Israel starting 16.2.2020 and onwards. Quarantine orders do not apply to anyone who stayed in these places during a connection flight.
Quarantine is an order! Additionally – you need to register with the Ministry of Health website or to report to the phone hotline - *5400.
Our ability to prevent the spread of the disease to Israel is dependent on your cooperation and your compliance with the instructions of the Ministry of Health.
What to do if you have returned from these places, and you do not feel well?
Act in accordance with the instructions of the Ministry of Health – call the clinic or the emergency room ahead of time before you arrive for a check-up. Keep your nose and mouth covered with a mask or with another available cloth and do not use public transportation.
