Due to the low coronavirus morbidity in Israel, almost all pandemic restrictions will be lifted on June 1, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced Sunday.
This includes the so-called "green pass" vaccination certificates, the official said, meaning that Israelis, will be able to enter all public amenities regardless of vaccination status.
Edelstein said the decision, which will lift all caps on gatherings, indoor and outdoor alike, was the result of rigorous consultations with health officials.
The wearing of a mask will initially remain compulsory in enclosed places.
Israel owes its success in curtailing the spread of the deadly respiratory virus to a world-beating vaccination campaign, that he seen the vast majority of its adult population fully inoculated.
