I got a text message last night that I was in contact with someone who tested positive at a time when I was home. I called and they lifted my quarantine - but it really does not inspire confidence in the whole system.
Heard similar story from a friend.

What's final is that schools remain open until Erev RH.


Everything else is still being argued about, though it's looking like the lockdown will be watered down.

Also I hope beyond hope that shuls (and the airport) will not be totally closed....

The Israeli government voted Sunday evening to impose a full nationwide lockdown, despite criticism from both inside and outside of the government.

The lockdown will being at 2:00 p.m. this Friday, and will last for three weeks.

The original proposal by the Health Ministry had called for two weeks of full lockdown, followed by a partial lockdown for two additional weeks.

During the three-week lockdown, Israelis will be required to remain within 500 meters of their homes, except when leaving for essential needs, including food and medicine purchases.

Schools, which were originally planned to close this Wednesday, will close on Friday, and remain closed for the duration of the lockdown.

Hotels will be required to close during the lockdown.

It will be very hard to enforce this lockdown, with so many exceptions to the rules.

Many of the ones that started already opted for the capsule type program where they intended for the whole group to stay together. They do not have the same problem as the Yeshivas that opted for the "family" type program where each apartment is it's own capsule and they are allowed out for essential business. During lockdown the former have no real changes that need to be made, whereas the Yeshivas have a big problem.

Interesting piece starting at approximately 1:16. The piece was sent to me via WhatsApp with proper audio quality. The above link has bad audio quality on my computer, not sure how it comes across elsewhere.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Why is it such a shocker, I would think it would be a shocker the other way.

Was sarcasm. But was reported in some places that it might happen, which is utter nonsense. And it isn't.
