In light of the increase in coronavirus morbidity within the military, the IDF issued new guidelines Monday evening to prevent the spread of the virus among soldiers.

Among the guidelines are limitations on the number of soldiers who can be together in one place. Soldiers will be in small units of up to 10 people called 'capsules.' The maximum number of soldiers who can be in an enclosed space together is 50, and the maximum number of soldiers who can be together in an open space is 100.

In addition, soldiers returning to base from break or vacation will have to remain on the base for a month. Soldiers who return to base will be required to remain with a 'capsule' for five days before being allowed to return to their regular units.

In addition, soldiers will not be allowed to travel by train.
