Anyone have any info on this? Is this real?

The timing seems odd with everything going on in EY right now
It seems like two separate things. The opening of the country and allowing people vs. Internal restrictions seem to have no connection.

Israel didn't decide yet if restaurant & gyms can open on Tuesday, I would take any plans with a large pack of salt
News is now reporting restaurants will likely close from 05:00 per the government vote but at 09:45 the Corona Kenneset committee is expected to vote to reverse the rules

And its official. They're allowing entry
It does say that not all institutions will qualify.
Wondering if students will want to come back and spend succos away from home? And those that decide to wait until after Yom Tov might make the Yeshivos/Seminaries decide to only open then because its not worth having half empty classes....

How does it help if someone can take 10 days to turn positive?

By taking 2 negative covid tests within 10 days (day 1 & 5-8) and then taking the 3rd at the airport
Which means you can get infected the day before you fly and test negative on everything.

Takes 10 days to get infected? Thought its 10 days for symptoms to show..

Maybe its statistically negligible?

Might be pretty safe if you show two negative tests from the past 5 days, and you take a 3rd test at airport + quarantine for a few days.

Lol that's why I deleted my post. But I'm sure theres some creative way to manage this better.. just to close up until a vaccine is also not realistic

Obviously no guarantee, but let's say they figure it will weed out 90% of cases, it's worth it to open up to tourism etc.

The economy is tanking,  long term it's not sustainable.

The current info in the Mir is that they are opening a campus for (at least some of) the bachurim in Switzerland.
The rumor is that the owners of the Arosa Hotel have rented/given it to the Mir until Pesach.
(based on emails that they sent out + conversations with some of the magidei shiur)
Unknown to me at this time, if this is just for European bachurim, or all chutznekim.
