With around 4.3 million people having received at least one shot of a Covid-19 vaccine, Israel is currently preparing to reopen its economy.
As locals return to cultural events, mall shopping, museums and gyms, the domestic tourism sector is slowly returning.
Rural accommodation (zimmers) is now joined by hotels in opening under coronavirus restrictions.
The exit plan is based on the purple and green badge scheme.
Entry to hotels, cultural and sports events, gyms and studios, swimming pools and places of worship is allowed only to green badge holders.
Those eligible for the green badge, which is issued by the health ministry, are either at least a week after the second coronavirus vaccine or have recovered from the disease.
The badge, with its unique QR code, must be presented either in digital or print form, together with ID, at the entrance to these establishments.
