Israel's Health Ministry will begin using electronic bracelets next month to enforce quarantine restrictions on all arrivals from abroad – tourists as well as local residents.

The bracelets will replace the government-mandated hotels used to house and monitor many travelers.

Currently anyone entering Israel who has not recovered from a coronavirus infection or been vaccinated against the virus in Israel, faces a mandatory quarantine period.
