Israel Reinstates Mask Mandate

After a surge of new Coronavirus cases due to the Delta variant, Israel reinstated its mask mandate for enclosed spaces. After an outbreak in two elementary schools in various parts of the country last week, the Health Ministry is also strongly urging youth aged 12-15 to be vaccinated as soon as possible. There is also concern that remaining doses of the vaccine will run out quickly before Israel gets another shipment from Pfizer. In short, there is renewed anxiety throughout the country about this new strain causing higher infections. Please pray for all Israelis as they face the tough decision of whether or not to vaccinate their children. Please also pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they too face tough decisions about measures to take to curb the spread of the new variant. Lastly, please pray for a full recovery for all infected, especially children.
