Jerusalem, May 15 (IANS) Israel decided to cancel the mandatory quarantine for Covid-19 patients, according to a statement issued by the country’s Health Ministry.

The ease will take effect on Tuesday, ending the more than three-year quarantine mandate for Covid-19-positive cases since the pandemic broke out in February 2020, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Ministry on Sunday recommended that those infected with the virus apply home quarantine despite the removal of the obligation, and wear a face mask when going out.

The Ministry also advised the public to get vaccinated, especially the more vulnerable groups.
