    More Coronavirus hotels in Jerusalem

    In a conversation this evening (Sunday), Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion have agreed that the two will act immediately to open Coronavirus hotels for dedicated use.

    Emergency call for tests to diagnose Coronavirus in Jerusalem

    Jerusalem Mayor, Moshe Lion: Lets save lives!

    Reducing Corona infection is the key to fighting this disease. I ask the residents to show responsibility and save lives this way. Take responsibility for yourself, your children, your families, your loved ones, your neighbors, your neighborhood and for the entire city of Jerusalem. Immediately upon symptoms occurring, go get tested and follow the Ministry of Health guidelines. Bring your test permit to the test site available at Teddy Stadium. If you are tested positive, it is important to make sure that you are strictly insulated and hygienic.

    The municipality of Jerusalem is calling on its residents from all sectors to help reduce the spread of the Corona virus.

    Residents who were close to a known Corona patient or who returned from abroad and need to be isolated at home according to the guidelines and who have symptoms such as: fever, cough, shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing are asked to call the Magen David Adom hotline *101. If approved, they can get tested at home or at the Teddy Stadium Testing Center. Arrival is once summoned by Magen David Adom. A code will appear in the summon on your mobile device.

    Residents with illness symptoms who have not been approved by the Mada hotline can contact the family physician to get a approval form to get tested from the Kupat Holim in which they are insured. A notification will be sent to the mobile phone.

    The Corona Drive-In Testing Center in Jerusalem was set up a week ago in the East Teddy parking lots. The tests are done by Magen David Adom and each test involves taking a specimen from the muzzle and the nostril only, using a cotton swab stick.

    Performing tests according to the guidelines will allow patients to be diagnosed, assist them early in illness and bring about the recovery of more. It should be noted that residents who are unable to reach the complex independently will receive assistance from Magen David Adom and the Jerusalem municipal supervision staff.

    Again, we advise to strictly adhere to all Health Ministry guidelines to prevent overcrowding and please keep hygiene regulations!

    Dear Business Owners

    In light of your many inquiries regarding a number of issues, we would like to clarify these issues after having examined them with the Ministry of Health:

    Any business that is licensed under licensing group 4.7, i.e. kiosk, supermarket, butcher shop - may open under the updated regulated restrictions.

    This means that fruit and vegetable stores, makolets, bakeries (which have a grocery business license) and also businesses selling grocery products and among other things also sell nuts (Pitzuhim) can open under the updated regulated restrictions.

    Every business under licensing group 4.2 must be closed and can operate only in the format of deliveries and in accordance with the updated regulations.

    As regards restaurants, cafes and food stops - these can only work in the form of a delivery service.

    It should be clarified that bakeries that operate in the form of a café or buffet must remain closed but can operate a delivery system.

    Construction products shops (Tambur) - there is a prohibition on opening the business but deliveries can be made.

    These clarifications are correct according to the emergency regulations as of today, March 26, 2020, 14:30). Changes in the regulations and guidelines must be monitored from time to time.
