Israel’s coronavirus czar, Salman Zarka, said Thursday that the start of the school year is a “clear message that we can live with COVID,” and added that health officials have not yet determined how many active coronavirus cases would trigger the closure of schools.

“I don’t believe that any class will need to be closed for more than a few days,” Zarka said. “We can’t guarantee that in the coming school year there won’t be any COVID cases in the schools, so we’re bringing vaccines to the schools. Happily, there’s been a lot of demand.”
