The Ministry of Education instructed this morning (Thursday) the principals of all educational institutions not to allow entry to the schools and kindergartens of teaching staff, teachers, kindergarten teachers and assistants who do not have a green mark. The directive also states that the absence of these workers – who are not vaccinated or who refuse to present a negative corona test – will be considered as an absence from work that is unjustified and therefore does not qualify for pay. Furthermore: Principals were also required to ensure that those same teachers were not allowed to teach remotely. This directive puts an end to the many debates that have taken place recently on the subject. To date, no response has been received from the teachers’ organizations. Next week, the conditions for receiving the green label are expected to change and they will also include the booster portion. Therefore, according to various estimates, the above number is also expected to increase.
Prof. Nachman Ash, Director General of the Ministry of Health, stated that his office would recommend to the Corona Cabinet (which has not convened for two weeks) to limit gatherings At mass events, including sporting events. In an interview with Ynet , Prof. Ash said: “In the current state of illness and in preparation for returning to school next weekend, the Ministry of Health is interested in adjusting the restrictions imposed on events – weddings and others – in which there are large gatherings. “I would recommend reducing to 400 people who can be in a closed compound and over 500 and not much beyond that in an open compound.” Ash also said: “We do not see a decrease in the number of difficult patients in recent days, and this is mainly due to the non-vaccinated who became infected – their disease is more severe. We see this explicitly in the current wave.”
Akmo, said the director general of the Ministry of Health: “The distress is mainly in the medical staff, in the intensive care teams. We are on the edge in this matter. There is still room for every patient who needs it but if the numbers go up, we will have to make tough decisions. We do not want to get into this situation so it is important to get vaccinated. It is the disease of the unvaccinated that burdens the hospitals. If the numbers go up, it will be difficult to continue. “
