Did they give that in writing that she doesn't need to quarantine? I would imagine someone getting busted breaking quarantine and saying "but the officer at the airport told me I don't need to quarantine" without any proof isn't going to fly.
In Israel is usually works the other way. The immigration officer doesn't allow people in before they register on MoH website as being subject to quarantine.

I was under the impression you fill out the quarantine form before you leave and everyone coming from a red country is subject to quarantine till they get their negative test. (I have a relative going who has a positive antibody test with a negative covid test and am trying to understand the process).

That's the way it should work.

Somewhat related to this thread, possibly more so to "would you fly now" or "when will air travel resume" threads, but I'm not up to searching for them now, and I'm no @TimT

The Israeli government announced today that  the Health Ministry list of people in quarantine will be synced with the border control to stop anybody in quarantine from leaving Israel.

Is there any way to check the list?

I would be surprised if it works as advertised. I bet the border officers would need to cross reference the quarantine list manually

Does anyone know if this is only for Israeli citizens  or will include those entering the country?

Does anyone know how to apply for an ishur for business related reasons?

I guess you can call them (use the pretense of asking when quarantine is over)

א שאלה איז טרף

My source in EY just sent me a voicenote saying that the implementation of the procedure to allow exit from isolation based on antibody tests has been postponed by two weeks. I haven't yet seen anything written.

Interesting...the seminary my wife works in said the girls who have antibodies are not patur from bidud, only the girls who tested positive. I guess that's based on the above

Dont be so afraid of officially needing to be in quarantine.

I came back recently from israel the quarantine in NYC is more strict then israel

NYC called me every day to ask if im quarantined. ..just asked but they did something

in israel nobody called nobody came to check. you don't even need to write a building number where you go. Nothing
In NY if you don't fill out any papers they don't know you need to quarantine. In Israel people were caught, including someone who left his phone but they tracked his rav kav.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
