I am applying for application to go to Israel to visit my brother who is an Israeli Citizen. One of the requirements is showing health insurance that covers COVID in Israel. Anyone have any suggestions for this.

Apologies if this is a repost.

Thanks

Vote #2 for Traveler's Choice (didn't use them for insurance, used for other stuff). Probably better not to spell out their email addresses in a public forum though.

R is down to 0.65 with the already miniscule numbers.

Are there any exceptions? Hospitals (not COVID-related), busses, planes within Israel?

Have you only been there 10 days, or only gone maskless for 10 days?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I understand him to be saying he hasnt even worn a mask once anywhere in the last 10 days, but was probably there for longer (and maybe had to wear a mask somewhere in Israel >10 days ago).

Until the outdoor mask was lifted, most people wore masks outdoors and almost everybody in taxis and stores. After it was lifted, when the driver wore a mask I wore one out of courtesy, and in some stores/restaurants where it was requested/expected. In the last 10 days I don't think I had occasion to wear one.

If theyre wearing masks because it feels safe to them then theyd do it with or without regulation.

I guess same as the people still wearing them outdoors. The chance of catching covid in Israel is less than getting hit by lightning at this point.

I tend to wear a mask in stores and on buses, more out of courtesy than anything else.   I know several people who can't get vaccinated, due to allergies and other health issues, and even though there is almost no Covid around here now, that doesn't mean that they have no chance of catching it.

I kind of understand at risk people masking indoors for anxiety reasons. But statistically it makes 0 sense. Have you seen anyone at risk from touching peanuts not walk into a supermarket?

TIL: Odds of getting hit by lightning are not as high as you'd think.
