you do not get a letter.
the yeshiva needs to do it for you.

Is the Mir doing this now?

Why can't all boys arriving the same time, quarantine together?

Because its possible that boy one is infected, infects boy two on day 8, who infects boy 3 on day 14. Now boy 3 goes to geulah and stuffs himself into a store and infects six people unknowingly. Then these six people infect forty more and Israel has an outbreak in a population with virtually no built up immunity.

Obviously this is far fetched but its a possibility.

It's not up to airport to decide when flights will resume. This press conference was a complete clown show. Just a few airport officials trying to justify for their high salaries

No
I hear that the Mir sent out an email that they can now apply for a אישור.

Per my next door neighbor doctor, most of the increase is in Tel Aviv

Not sure why a doctor is more qualified to provide this information, but it is true per MoH website.

I live in Tel Aviv. Hardly see anyone wearing masks these days and they have reopened everything. So can't say I'm surprised
