The Health Ministry has issued the long-awaited order that allows the average Israeli to forego a mask indoors.

Health Ministry Director-General Prof. Chezi Levy signed the order that officially cancels the mandate to wear a mask indoors to prevent the spread of COVID-19.


Certain sectors of the population must still wear a mask indoors, however.

There is still a requirement to wear a mask if you are:

  • Unvaccinated
  • Sick
  • Employed in a social services institution
  • Hospitalized
  • A nursing home resident
  • En route to a home-based quarantine, or
  • A passenger on an aircraft.
