Chaim V’Chessed reports that as of today, Israel is pausing the issuance of new student permits until after the lockdown.
The lockdown will last until at least October 10th.
Students that were already issued permits can still enter the country and go directly into full quarantine if they have recently been to “red” countries and into lockdown if they have only been to “green” countries.
Israel currently has some of world’s highest per-capita COVID-19 infection rates and hopes that a 2nd lockdown will bring the numbers down to a more manageable rate that won’t overwhelm the medical infrastructure.
Do you think the US will also go back into lockdown this fall?
