Gov’t extends Bnei Brak lockdown by five days, lightens restrictions

The special ministerial committee overseen by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu virtually convened and determined that the lockdown  on the city of Bnei Brak would be extended by five days, although some restrictions would be reduced.
Residents are allowed to leave the city for essential services they cannot get in Bnei Brak or for funerals of nuclear family members. Essential workers will be able to go to and from work and parents of divorced children will be able to transfer their children to the other parent.
The committee is expected to convene again in the next day to make a final decision about a similar lockdown on the city of Jerusalem.
