Daily Update for Tuesday May 5th, 15:00


Dear Residents,

Yesterday, additional restrictions were eased to help us get back our normal routines.

The 100-meter restriction has been lifted, and visiting close family members is now permitted. 
Up to 20 people are allowed to gather together in open areas. It is permissible to walk outside in nature, but the parks and the courts are still closed.

Businesses that are allowed to return at this point are required to adhere to the "purple" guidelines: https://ctconnect.co.il/forms/form?f=d448339e7f6f9c45224ee2651525e545

The education system continues to reopen gradually. 11th and 12th graders are returning to a limited schedule in preparation for their exams.

There is still no transportation to the various schools, due to lack of budgeting by the Ministry of Education. We are working to find a solution that will enable all students to return to school in a convenient and safe manner.

The Ministry of the Interior / Social Security branch in Efrat will return to remote activity. You can contact Rita by email: rita@efrat.muni.il and by phone: 02-9939306

In order to prevent another outbreak of the Coronavirus, we remind everyone of the importance of social distancing, wearing masks, and maintaining personal hygiene. It is of the utmost importance to tell your family doctor as soon as possible if you experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, fever, or dry cough, and update your family doctor as soon as possible.

We wish you well, and we will continue to update,
The Public Information Team
