Daily Update for Tuesday, January 5th at 20:30


Dear Residents,

There are now 105 verified patients in Efrat. Of these, 31 are children, and an additional 443 children are in isolation.

After lengthy discussions and data analysis with the Ministry of Education, and in collaboration with the schools and ganim, it was decided that the schools will continue with distance learning and the ganim system will not operate, except for special education.

We are aware of the difficulties that this decision causes, and we are preparing guidelines for the stricter lockdown that is planned for this weekend. Our goal is to stop the chain of infection and prevent further isolation.

We have been asked repeatedly about private ganim in and outside of Efrat, so we are reminding you that we do not have the authority to close these ganim, however we recommend that they should not open at this time.

We will keep you updated,

The Public Information Team
