The Cabinet approved on Monday evening the enforcement of emergency regulations following a decision approved earlier in the day by the “Coronavirus Cabinet”.

According to the decision, weddings and Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebrations (or similar celebrations in other religions) will take place with the participation of up to 250 people. At other events, the number of participants may not exceed 50. The provision will be in effect until July 9, 2020.

From July 10 through July 31, the number of participants in an event taking place in a building may not exceed half of the allowed occupancy, and no more than 100 people (the number of participants allowed in an event in an open area will remain at 250).

The draft order approved by the Cabinet will be brought as soon as possible before one of the Knesset committees authorized to discuss the issue.

In addition, an order by the Director-General of the Ministry of Health regarding the operations of summer camps and the holding of exams in higher education institutions will be signed soon.

The Ministry of Health is calling on the public to adhere to the basic guidelines for maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask and strict hygiene so that the spread of the coronavirus in Israel can be prevented.
