Israel went into its second coronavirus lockdown during the High Holy Days. Beaches are empty, traffic during the week has been backed up at police checkpoints and as tighter restrictions went into effect on Friday afternoon, streets emptied. Israelis are used to seeing roads empty on the day of Yom Kippur, but the lockdown came days before the day of atonement.
