Coronavirus hotels policy to be reexamined, Health Ministry officials say

The director-general of the Health Ministry, Prof. Chezy Levy, said Monday that there was no more room to run quarantine hotels for people returning from abroad. Coronavirus commissioner Prof. Nachman Ash echoed this sentiment, saying this policy would be reexamined.
Deputy Health Minister MK Yoav Kisch said on Monday that in light of the fact that the vaccine is  effective when there is a fear of infection from the mutation it would be correct to move to home isolation and stop the quarantine in hotels. Ynet reported that in practice, only 46% of those returning from abroad actually enter the hotels, the rest have been asking for and were granted exceptions from the policy.
