As scenes of Israelis packed inside Ben-Gurion Airport have surfaced in recent days, the Health and Transportation ministries decided to update the country's coronavirus travel policies.
Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and Transportation Minister Miri Regev, along with their director-generals, toured the airport on Sunday to determine the changes that need to be made. 
The following new regulations have now been added to the exiting ones, known as the "Blue Ribbon" outline.

Incoming Flights
- Those coming from "green" countries will not need to be screened so that the flow of people will become smoother and large gatherings will be prevented.
- Now more than four aircraft will be connected to sleeves – the long pathways attaching an aircraft to the airport through which passengers alight – at a time, of which only two aircraft may come from "red" countries.
- The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has been instructed to step up enforcement of airlines in the departing countries so that no passengers will board the planes without a pre-filled health declaration.
- A team intended to improve the computer interface for saving time will be established, and a directive was added to complete the standardization of border crossings in terms of the number of inspectors.
- When a plane is connected to a sleeve, there will be supervision and the descent from the aircraft will be done in groups of 20-30 passengers at a time to avoid congestion in the passage between the sleeve and the border patrol.
Departing Flights
- Pending the regulations which will appear in the upcoming amendment to coronavirus regulations, flight counters will open four hours before the flight time to handle check-in processes in a more spaced-out manner.
- Airlines will be required to have six flight attendants manning each flight's check-in counters.
- The number of check-in stations in the departing flight hall will be doubled.
