Israel Asks Citizens to Reconsider Travel as Virus Spreads
(Bloomberg) -- The Israeli government has asked citizens to reconsider plans to travel abroad, as the coronavirus spreads to more countries.
“The Health Ministry is calling on the public to consider the necessity of travel abroad in general,” the ministry said in a text message. It also advised against holding or attending international gatherings.
The ministry added Italy to the list of destinations from which Israelis are required to enter into quarantine upon return. It’s the first non-Asian country on the list.
