Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - JERUSALEM — Israel's Health Minister Yuli Edelstein on Sunday announced that on June 1, almost all anti-COVID-19 restrictions in the country will be lifted.

The minister explained in a statement that the decision was taken "due to the low and stable morbidity in Israel that has been going on for a long time."

Under the decision, Israeli businesses will no longer need a purple badge, which requires fever measurement at the entrance, keeping distance among customers, placing partitions between buyers and sellers, and more.

The green pass, which represents a permit to enter indoor places including restaurants and cinemas for recovered and vaccinated people, will also be canceled. However, the obligation to wear a face mask indoors will remain valid.

In addition, restrictions on entry and exit to Israel will not be lifted, and if necessary even tightened, the minister noted. She said Israel "is getting back to normal."

Edelstein noted that "thanks to the excellent work of the health care system and the incredible compliance of the Israeli citizens, the best vaccination campaign was carried out, leading to the low morbidity."

The Israeli Health Ministry reported 11 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, raising the total number in the country to 839,319, while its COVID-19 death toll rose by five to 6,402.

The number of people vaccinated against COVID-19 in Israel has surpassed 5.44 million, or 58.3 percent of its total population.

The number of active cases in the country currently stands at 510, compared to a peak of about 88,000 recorded in February this year. — Agencies
