Israel’s Channel 12 reports that senior officials are saying that the airport will remain closed through at least the end of Pesach in early April.
The airport is officially only closed through March 6th at 9:59pm.
Some 50% of Israelis have been at least partially vaccinated and 35% of Israelis have been fully vaccinated.
In other news, Channel 12 reports that COVID hotels in Israel will make yet another comeback, while the state has shelled out over half a billion shekels to pay for the hotel rooms. Hotel quarantine had just closed down before the latest about-face.
Channel 12 also reports that in the coming days, Israel will open up Green Passports to people who have antibodies for COVID. Currently they are only issued to people who have recently recovered from COVID or who have been fully vaccinated. Green Passport holders will be to go to the gym, theaters, hotel, concerts, and more.
It’s just another day in the constantly changing Israeli COVID rules.
