The government today (Sunday) approved an outline for tourists entering Eilat and the Dead Sea area by presenting a negative corona test. According to the outline, the Corona Cabinet will be allowed to define the places as “green tourist islands”, and allow the opening of hotels and additional businesses to be used by tourists.
According to the “Magen Eilat” layout, entry to the city will only be possible via Highway 90 or through Ramon Airport. Vacationers will be required to present a certificate that has been found negative for the virus in a test performed up to 48 hours before arrival.
It will be possible to check free of charge in a number of places around the country, subject to presentation of a booking confirmation from the place of accommodation and a referral from the hotels. Alternatively, it will be possible to perform a quick check for a fee at one of several stations that will be set up on the way to Eilat.
A guest who is found to be negative for the virus will receive written approval as well as a barcode, which will be used at the entrance checkpoint to the city. A guest who has been tested and verified in Corona, will immediately enter the isolation in accordance with the rules of the Ministry of Health and will be exempt from paying for the vacation he booked.
In the same way, Ramon Airport will be opened for low-cost flights directly from abroad during the winter season. Tourists from abroad will also be required to present an admissible negative corona test in Israel upon entry. Upon landing in the field, tourists will undergo an additional rapid corona test using Sofia devices. A tourist who does not present a negative result on demand will be returned to the country of origin. A tourist whose test result is positive will be placed in isolation in a suitable facility.
Alongside this, the hotels will continue to operate in accordance with the strict purple mark rules (35% occupancy in the dining rooms, limitation of gatherings, keeping a distance of seven meters in the pool and so on). In addition to these, regular weekly surveys will be conducted in Eilat for all employees of the tourism industry who come into contact with tourists.
Additional restaurants and shops will probably be allowed to open for the benefit of tourists who come to those “islands”. In the future, it is possible that the Sea of Galilee area and other tourist areas in Israel will receive an opening permit.
