The Israeli Ministry of Health extended quarantine for those infected with the Omicron strain

The Israeli Ministry of Health has changed the quarantine rules for those infected with the new Omicron coronavirus.

According to the new rule, those infected with Omicron must be quarantined for 14 days, and not 10, as was previously the case for carriers of other strains of coronavirus. In addition, Omicron carriers will be able to receive a certificate of recovery if they have not experienced symptoms of the disease during the last three days of quarantine.

The Ministry of Health explained that the change in quarantine rules is due to concerns that the Omicron strain may be transmitted to other people and be infectious for longer than other strains of the coronavirus.

Those who were suspected of being infected with the new strain will be able to leave quarantine after 10 days with special permission.
