Travelers from United Kingdom might require 14-day isolation in Israel
TEL AVIV (ISRAEL) – Israel will require incoming travellers from the United Kingdom to self-isolate for 14 days after arrival going by the new coronavirus guidelines, information on an Israeli government website showed on Sunday.
The sharp increase in recent weeks prompted British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to introduce tighter restrictions and local lockdowns.
The UK had been one of 31 “green” countries because of which travellers who meet a series of special requirements were allowed to enter Israel without a mandatory quarantine period.
The UK’s status will change to “red” on October 23, as shown by Israeli health ministry information.
The health ministry identifies some 185 other countries and localities as red, which points to high infection rates. Incoming Israeli travellers also should go for mandatory self-isolation.
On Sunday, Israel set forth on a second-wave lockdown.
