Israel’s Green Pass system will no longer be extended after March 1 when the current system is set to expire, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Thursday morning.
“We were the first country to close its borders to Omicron, so it is now time to start lessening [the restrictions] gradually,” Bennett said at the start of a discussion on the future of corona restrictions in Israel. “As far as I’m concerned, we need to prepare for the end of the restrictions soon.”
The discussion focused on the steps Israel will take now that the Omicron wave has passed its peak, in order to maintain a normal sense of life while also remaining alert for any future corona waves.
While the Green Pass restrictions have been severely reduced over the last few weeks, they will now be removed entirely, although one aspect – the need to perform an antigen test at the entrance to nursing homes – will remain.
