Israel restores indoor mask requirement

The requirement to wear a mask indoors will be restored next week, as Thursday marked the fourth day in a row that the country registered over 100 new daily cases and the new outbreaks spread to several more municipalities, including Kfar Saba, Ramle and Herzliya, APA reports citing The Times of Israel. 
 
In addition, the Health Ministry invited Ashkelon residents to get tested after traces of the Delta variant were found in the city’s wastewater.
 
“Our recommendation is to start wearing masks indoors already now,” Coronavirus Commissioner Prof. Nachman Ash said. “Next week, it will be mandatory.”
 
Earlier in the week, the government announced that if the weekly average of daily cases was to exceed 100, they would restore the obligation to wear masks in closed spaces. As of Thursday morning, the figure stood at 75, up from 58 on the previous day and 45 on Tuesday.
