Jerusalem's municipal government launched a new project this week aimed at encouraging the use of public parks while promoting social distancing, marking recreation spots on  the grass in the form of hearts, according to Kolhair. 
 
"In this way, Gan Haatzmaut recreation spots were marked in white paint in the form of hearts, thus enabling people to sit together but also apart  to enjoy the urban setting," according to the municipality of Jerusalem.

Given the initial success, the municipality is planning to include Gan Sacker as well as other large parks in the city. 
 
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion added that "this is a special project that follows an international trend. It helps in creating a pleasurable experience for park-goers while adhering to the safety regulations. I believe that the project will help the public to follow the rules for combating the coronavirus."
