In the fight against the coronavirus, Israel has put the new traffic light system into place by Prof. Ronni Gamzu. Cities, towns and regional councils are now divided into; red-, orange- yellow- and green-zones and the severity of restrictions will be placed on them accordingly.  Zoning will be reassessed every 2 weeks. As of September 17th, 2020, the eve of the second lockdown, 98 per-cent of Israel is either 'red' or 'orange' and only 2% is 'green'.

A second, 3 week lockdown, commenced on September 18th. On October 1st, it was announced that the lockdown could last 6 months to one year.  Updates and restrictions have been outlined here.
