Israel Establishes 14-day Quarantine for Arrivals in Response to Wuhan Virus Outbreak

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 9 that everyone arriving in Israel must undergo a 14 day self-quarantine.

“All those coming to Israel from abroad will be placed in isolation,” he said in a video address.

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said the measure would be immediately going into effect for all Israelis returning to the country.
