Israel reinstates indoor mask mandate

Israel's Health Ministry announced on Friday that it has reimposed an indoor mask mandate, in an effort to curb the newly accelerated spread of the coronavirus.

The renewed rules are set to be enforced from noon today in all closed spaces, and the ministry has also called for people to wear masks outside when they are in large groups.

The move comes as Israel recorded over 200 new coronavirus cases in the country over the past day, its highest number in two months, but the country's coronavirus coordinator asserted that despite the uptick Israel was not facing another major pandemic wave.
