Meh. That's not an official source.

true but generally when 2 of the most prestigious papers in the country say a announcement is coming within hours you figure where there is smoke there is fire.
now if it is true you need to wonder what the status of ewr is ?

Has nothing to do with JFK vs EWR according to the quote.

Galgalatz says on Twitter that it isn't official yet. Haaretz says the same and that they are debating it in this upcoming week.

Looks like residents of NY, CA, and WA will be under the 2 week quarantine.  Game over nearing?

המועצה לביטחון לאומי עדכנה את משרד החוץ שבשעות הקרובות משרד הבריאות צפוי להודיע על כך שכל הטסים לישראל מניו יורק, קליפורניה ומדינת וושינגטון יתבקשו להיכנס לבידוד. חובת הבידוד לא תחול על מי שטס בקונקשיין דרך יעדים אלה. כמו כן צפוי המשרד להודיע כי לא תיאסר הטיסה לארצות הברית. השבים מוועידת איפא"ק לא יידרשו להיכנס לבידוד וזאת על אף שאותרו כבר שני חולי קורונה שהשתתפו בוועידה. ממשרד ראש הממשלה נמסר כי "טרם נפלה כל החלטה ובכל מקרה אם וכאשר תתקבל החלטה, היא תצא על ידי משרד הבריאות".

Fake news. מזוייף מתוכו.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The rule doesnt apply to connecting passengers, so the issue is not where the flight came from, but rather where the passenger came from

This. And obviously Israelis who visited those places as well that are returning.

As for JFK vs. EWR - EWR is generally spoken about as "New York" here.

This is not "fake news," rather more "news in the pipeline waiting to be finalized."

Terminal 1 TLV shut down now, presumably due to lack of flights...

Healthy Ministry called for major announcements at 7pm ISR. Might be unrelated

I'm scheduled to fly to EWR in 2 weeks and so far looks like less than 20 seats are occupied in Y

Tomorrow night's flight cancelled due to low demand

Israel health ministry wants to require anyone coming from abroad to self quarantine. This would need the PMs approval.
