No More Masks?

Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said Sunday that if there is no spike in Israel’s coronavirus infection rate in the next few days, the indoor mask mandate will be lifted on June 15th. Six months after a vigorous vaccination campaign, Israel’s daily infections have plummeted to single digits. Israel scrapped the outdoor mask requirement a few weeks ago, and is slated to remove more restrictions. However, the mask mandate will not apply to schools. Israel just began vaccinating its younger population, aged 12-15. So it will take time for herd immunity to build up in the classroom. Please continue to pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they still face sensitive decisions that affect the lives of many. Please also pray for continued success in keeping infections low. Lastly, please pray for a full and complete healing of those who were infected with COVID and suffer from its after effects.
