 Ministry of Health on the eve of the holidays: coronavirus is still here

The Israeli Ministry of Health appealed to citizens on the eve of the holidays about the coronavirus. The corresponding statement appeared in the press service of the Ministry of Health. “The coronavirus is still here, so it's important to continue to be careful during the holiday season,” it said. To protect the elderly and at-risk people, the agency recommends doing a home antigen test before holiday meals and family gatherings to make sure Israelis don't put their grandparents at risk. "In public transport, as well as in closed and crowded places – please wear a mask. People 65 years of age and older and people at risk – coronavirus and flu put you at significant risk of severe illness. Contact the health insurance companies and get a vaccine adapted to Omicron, as well as a flu vaccine. Both vaccinations can be done in one visit, or in two separate visits,” the Ministry of Health added. In case of poor health and symptoms, the department recommends staying at home and resting.
