Nobody likes isolating but in certain cases this is the only way to protect those dearest to you and to avoid infecting others

Who should not go into isolation

As of 23.5.2022, isolation is no longer required in the following cases (regardless of vaccination or recovery):
• Those who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID case
• Those who live with a confirmed case, even if it is a helpless individual
• Those who accompany a patient in isolation

If you accompany a child under the age of 12 or a helpless individual diagnosed with COVID, you will no longer be eligible for isolation benefits because you do not have to remain in isolation. In this situation, the usual rules for a child's illness apply.

Onset of symptoms during isolation

If, during isolation, fever of 38 degrees, coughing of difficulty breathing appear, or if existing symptoms worsen, you may seek help from your primary care physician over the phone or contact the hotline of your insuring HMO. Do not arrive in the HMO clinic or the emergency room unless this is an urgent medical emergency. Then, you must be evacuated to the emergency room by a Magen David Adom ambulance. During the dispatch call, you are required to disclose that the person who requires evacuation is a person currently in isolation or a confirmed COVID-19 case.
